Just horrible

"Let's write about your family!" I told one of my pupils today, "Mummy or Daddy?"

"What about my brothers?" he said.

He doesn't have any brothers. He's an only child "Okay... " I said, "Uh, how many brothers do you have?"

"I have thousands of brothers," he said, sounding slightly like some civil rights leader.

"What are their names?"

"Logan... "

"Any others?"


I chose a name at random. "Brian? Is one of your brothers called Brian?"


"Really? Brian?"


"What about... Chester?"


"Oh... how about Arthur? Do you have a brother called Arthur?"

"Yes! You know all my brothers, don't you?"

"Why yes, I do."
