A Linguistic Experience

Kathy and I decided to have a look at the kids' grade online. As with any system, it's only as accurate as the data entered. Stephanie's grade in Art was listed as an "F". Her teacher hadn't entered anything for a while so her grade isn't correct. But that's not what this post is about.

Kathy asked Steph, "Why do you have an 'F' in Art?" Steph, Josh and I exchanged knowing looks and smirked to ourselves. Kathy, not getting what we were getting, saw the smile on Stephanie's face and said, "This isn't funny. Why do you have an 'F' in Art?" The kids and I started laughing when I playfully told Kathy, "Stephanie doesn't have an Art."

The OMG look Kathy got on her face when she realized the phonetically similar interpretation of her remarks was priceless.
