  • Luke: Good. I stayed on green again.
  • DH: Good job! Was Ms. Jones there today?
  • Luke: No, we had a new teacher, another new teacher.
  • DH: Not the one from yesterday?
  • Luke: No, she was new.
  • DH: Oh, what was her name?
  • Luke: Um, I don’t remember, but it has Miss in it just like Miss Jones.
