As noted earlier, this is the time of year when the seventh graders are learning the remaining five scales that they didn't have to prepare for All-District auditions. One of them did particularly well on the F# major scale, so it was time to move ahead...
ME: That was very good! So as your "reward," I'll give you something even more challenging to work on--the C# scale.
(after slight pause) Oh wait, that's not really exciting, is it?
