Pupil M, to Pupil C: Bitch.
Me: Don't call her that.
Pupil C: It's okay.
Me: No it isn't.
Pupil C: No, it is, because a bitch is a dog and dogs bark, and bark comes from a tree and trees are part of nature, and nature is beautiful.
Me, to Pupil M: Can't you just tell her she's beautiful?
Pupil C: I know what she means.
