Student: How did I do on my practice test?Me: You did well on everything except the reading comp.
Student: Oh. I was distracted. Three of my friends were there.
Me: That makes sense. This passage though, you did really well.
Student: I remember that passage. That was when my friend threw a pencil at me.
Me: . . .
Student: Maybe I can get him to throw pencils at me during the test.
Me: That seems like a perfectly reasonable strategy.
