Mind Tricks

In one class, I have a
Kyle, and
so I have a very hard time saying the right name with the right student.

One day, Kevin, a Vietnamese student, raised his hand.

Ms. B: Yes, Kris?
Kevin: Ms. B! It's Kevin!
Ms. B: Oh, Kevin, I'm so sorry! I can't beleive I mess that up so much.
Kevin: [frustrated; pounding his fists; trying to show me that the words kinda rhyme] Keh-VIN. A-SIAN.

Deandre: Ms. B, why are there no teachers here who's name starts with an A?
Ms. B: Because we made sure not to hire anyone with a name that starts with an A.
Deandre: Why!?!
Ms. B: Because they're mean.
Deandre: What? Not always!
Ms. B: Mmmm hmmm.

Daniel: No, Deandre. The music teacher's first name is Ava!
Deandre: [looks at Ms. B] I believed you for a bit.
