Me: Polite Little Boy, you're a bit slow to pick up your things. Do you think that might be because you are chatting too much to your friend?
P L B: (looking somewhat misunderstood) I'm not chatting, Mrs Clark.
Me: I think you are, I saw you.
P L B: I'm not chatting, I'm HAVING A CONVERSATION!!!
Me: (speechless, but not for long)
AND NOW IT IS HALF TERM!!!!!
