Student: Miss! I want to learn to speak Country.
Me: That is not a real language.
Student: I know, but I want to speak like the country.
Me (in utter disbelief): What on earth for?!
Student: I don’t know, I think it’d be fun.
Me: (I just stare for a moment)
Student: (does a horrible rendition of “Howdy ma’am” and “Ya’ll come back now, ya’hear?!”)
Me (shaking my head): I can’t believe I’m saying this, but if you really want to learn you could start watching Blue Collar Comedy or Larry the Cable Guy.
Student (excited): You’re the best, Miss.
Me (as an aside, he didn’t hear me): Yeah…. no, I’m really not.
