40-year-old smart, sexy, witty mother/wife/human being extraordinaire, czyli ja: Lizzie! You have a kartkówka tomorrow.
Lizzie, 3rd grader extraordinaire: What!? Karkówka for dinner tomorrow?
Ja: No, not karkówka (pork neck), karT-kówka. I’m checking your Librus (e-grade book) and it says that you have a kartkówka tomorrow. (stern look from mother)
Lizzie: Ooooh myyyy gaaaawd!!!! (long pause) What’s a kartkówka?
Ja: It’s a quiz.
Lizzie: Ooooh myyyy gaaaawd!!!! (long pause) What’s a quiz?
Ja: It’s like a small test. It comes from the word “kartka”.
Lizzie: Ooooh myyyy gaaaawd!!!! (long pause) A quiz on what?
Ja: I don’t know. It doesn’t say. I thought you’d know.
Lizzie: No idea. Oh well.
