Mom, can you make some food
for my Spanish class party?
Sure, what did the teacher ask you to bring?
A tuna casserole.
?!? Why a tuna casserole? People haven't been eating that since the 1950's!
And also, don't you want Mexican food, like enchiladas?
(patiently, as if I should already know this) No, mom. The girls in the class are bringing Mexican food. Senor Ortiz asked me to bring a tuna casserole.
Um, ok. But are you sure that's what he said?
