We have been continuing to review for the state mandated test that is approaching. Currently we are studying how to tell time after a certain amount has elapsed. This particular question asked, "Katie is making potatoes, and she put them in the oven at 5:35 pm. If the potatoes need to cook for 1 hour and 30 minutes, what time should Katie take them out of the oven?" This question caught L's attention. We enter...
L: "What? Why is that girl fiinna cook those potatoes in the oven? When I be making potatoes, I finna put them in the microwave. Get some sour cream, and bacon, toss some cheese on that mug..."
S: "Boy! Do you ever stop thinking about food? With yo' big headed, fat self.
L: "Shut up you nappy haired komodo dragon." (We recently watched Planet Earth.)
S: "I'll shut up when you stop being ugly."
Mr. A: "As stimulating as this conversation is, how about we focus on the question, so you guys can succeed on this test. So L, what time will Katie have to take the potatoes out?"
L: "Huh? Katie should take them out of the microwave...five minutes after she puts it in."
Mr. A: "Alright, so clearly we still have our work cut out for us."
