(This takes place in a class taught by a middle-aged woman.)

Student #1: “Hey, Ms. [teacher’s name], did they used to say things like ‘keen’ and ‘the cat’s meow’ when you were a kid?”

Teacher: “I’m old, but not that old, [student #1].”

Student #1: “No, I didn’t mean it like that. It’s just that my grandma said that she… um…”

Student #2: “Just stop talking, [student #1]. You’re only digging yourself deeper.”
