Yep. They do say the funniest thing. Two weeks ago and for the very first time since school started, my grandson failed to perfect his weekly spelling test. When told of the result, my daughter asked him: "Why? You went over your spelling words so well last night. Have you not been concentrating? What occurred since then? What? What?"
My grandson replied: "That's exactly it, Mum. I mispelt "occurred" and the test happened, it's gone and it's in the past." LOL!
I send him a £1.00 every time he comes home with a perfect test result. I still sent him £1.00 for the quick retort and a grasp of synonyms.
