Him: ‘I dunno.’

Free oil!! Yay!
Me, while doing a unit on ‘should get’: ‘What should I get my brother for his birthday?’
Kid: ‘A girlfriend.’
Two boys are slapping each other.
Me: ‘BOYS!!! What ARE you doing?’
They stop and gently slap hands.
Kid: ‘High five?’
Kid: ‘Teacher, STOP TALKING!’
Me: ‘What’s a mystery?’
Kid: ‘How to make a baby.’
Me: ‘Who made the pyramids?’
Kid: ‘Aliens. Aliens built pyramids.’
