Conversation with a student after school.
Student: "Ms. V. I'm going to move when we are done with school this year."
Me: "Oh, really? Where?"
Student: "I don't know but it's going to have a big pool and..." (I really don't know what else she said here...she went on and on and on about how special this pool was going to be and I kind of checked out...)
after she stopped talking:
Me: "Wow...that pool is something else!"
Student: "It is? What?"
Me: "What do you mean, what"
Student: "You said it is something else, what is it then?"
Me: (smiling...and CRACKING UP inside) "No, something else is just a phrase"
Student: "What does it mean?"
Me: "It means that it is really unique, special, cool"
Student: "Well why didn't you just say that???
