New kid in my English class today.


He was colouring in a work sheet with the rest of the group, when he started laughing at the title. The title was ‘Can I have a pet’.


I thought he was confused about what it meant, and gave him a detailed explanation as to how he would put this question to his parents in French if, for example, he wanted a cat or a dog.


He waited patiently for me to finish and then told me that he was laughing because he thought ‘pet’ sounded just like the word for ‘fart’ in French (which it does, especially when you add the sound-effects, like he did.)


I like this kid.
