More "dumb things"

Okay, so I'm telling you now that you'll think I made this one up. You really will, because it's just that good.

We're gearing up to read To Kill A Mockingbird. I was basically giving them a run-down about how the next few weeks are going to look, before I'm gone on maternity leave, and one of my boys raised his hand to ask a question.

CD: Mrs. Swaney, is that book about an alcoholic?

Me: Well, not really...[insert a few sentences of teacher talk]. Why?

CD: Then why's it called Tequilla Mockingbird?

Not kidding. It brought the house down. But it makes sense-- it does sorta sound like that, and he'd never seen the book before...
