Me: Laurel, do you have your speech finished?
Me: You know, the one that was due 2 weeks ago?
Laurel: No, but nobody else has theirs done, either.
Me: You know, when you get in middle school, high school, and college, you will have teachers who will not accept homework even ONE DAY LATE. If you turn it in late, you will get a big, fat ZERO.
Ethan: ‘Zero’ means ‘none,’ sis.
