I sat a new student right beside Pete. Not two days later Pete and the new student were talking away, oblivious to all the educational wisdom I was dispensing, and I was doling it out with charm and goodwill, too.
I yelled, "Pete! I see that you and Seth are good buddies now, aren't you, just a talkin' away."
Pete looks up and replies, "Oh no, Mr. W.! No we're not buddies! Honest!"
