This afternoon, as E3 was preparing to do her homework, I noticed yesterday's math homework still in her folder...
Me: Oh, did you forget to turn in your math homework?
E3, dismissively: No. We had a Sub. today.
E3: She wouldn't have known what to do with it.
Me: Uh, yes. She would have. You should have turned it in today.
She wouldn't have known what to do with it? What is that?
My mind has already morphed to an imaginary confrontation between her and the Substitute Teacher a la A Few Good Men... "You can't handle the homework!"
