Do you ever remember using a pencil in school? So why do they keep asking me if they need to have one?
It was Michael today. ""Mrs. W, do we need a pencil for this?"
"No," I replied. "If you have a thumbtack, you can always write it in blood."
He looked at me suspiciously for a moment. "You're being sarcastic, aren't you?"
It only counts as sarcasm if you were joking.
