Last night, Sophia wanted to learn "Oovoru pookalume" and sing it for a minute in Tamil class. I spent some time teaching her the lyrics and the song. Anjali, who was working with husband on her math, complained about the racket, and after 15 minutes looked up and said
"Sophia, what homework did you not finish?"
"I was wondering how to ask the same question Anjali", I said
The story is that their Tamil teacher has implemented a one minute compulsary tamil talent time for students who have not finished their homework/ didnt get their work signed etc
"I have done my homework!", Sophia insisted "I just want to sing."
"I think I am going to not do my homework tomorrow, then I can sing"
