Me: I see it. I'll get it later, just finish this problem.
Student: I dropped my pencil.
Me: I'll get it. Here, use mine.
Student: Where'd it go?
Me: It's next to the cashew.
Student: Oh, I see it. It's closer to your chair than to the cashew.
Me: Really? Well, you could do that with anything. The pencil is closer to the cashew than the sun.
Student: Everything is closer to the cashew than it is to the sun! The people in China are closer to the cashew than they are to the sun.
Me: Haha. True.
Student: The moon is closer to the cashew than to the sun!
Me: Look. I've thrown the cashew away. Can we do this math now?
Student: Mars is closer to the cashew than it is to the sun.
Me: Yes. Ok. Let's move on.
