Student #2: *jokingly* “It’s spelled C-h-o-u-s-d-a-y.”

Student #1: “Wait, is that right?”

Student #2: “So, [My Name], this is how you spell ‘Tuesday’ right?”

Me: *trying not to laugh* “Um. Yeah, totally.”

Student #2: “See, even she said so and she got an eight.”

Student #1: “But my laptop says Tuesday starts with a ‘T’…”

Student #2: “Does your laptop earn eights?”

Student #1: “…”
