Teacher: (reading “The Pigeon Wants a Puppy” by Mo Willems) Do any of you have a puppy?
Kid (among the loud chorus of other kid’s responses of yes/no): I have a cat named Snooki!
Teacher (exchanging glances with me): Did someone just say they had a cat named Snooki? We must have heard it wrong, right?
Kid: (even louder) Me! I do! My Snooki!
