So I had a conversation with a pupil about Christmas Trees today. This was how it went:
Pupil: We put our tree up last night, it has 366 lights on it.
Me: Wow! It must be big!
Pupil: No, we only got a small one this year.
Me: Oh, you mean like our class tree. (I pointed at our tree, which seems to be pretending to be a 3 foot bush)
Pupil: No, it's 10 feet tall.
Me: What! That's taller than I am. (I thought, 'she must be confused')
Pupil: Yeah, well we usually get a 21 foot tree, but Dad decided not to this year.
Me: Err, do you live in a castle?
Pupil: No, we just have a very high ceiling.
(Then she left)
