One of my students has a birthday in May and they were talking about their birthday party plans.
K: I’m gon have my part on the last day of school, cause we don’t get our food stamps until the 19th.
Mr. C: Oh okay.
D: Can I come?
K: Yeah but I’m gon keep it small. I don’t want it to get too crazy.
Mr. C: Probably a good idea.
K: It’s gonna be a DNN party.
Mr. C: A what?
K: DNN, Damn near naked. Haha, nah I’m just playin’.

K charges into the room.
K: Happy birthday Mr. C! I heard they say it on the intercom this mornin’.
Mr. C: Thank You Keyvonte.
S: (comes in) Happy Birthday Mr. C! (sings the entire birthday song.)
Mr. C: That was sweet, thank you Carlita.
S: How old you is? 28?
Mr. C: No, 27, but you were really close.
S: Ah damn I was just guessin’.
K: Nah Mr. C is 42 years old. He was born in 1966.
Mr. C: That math doesn’t work out but I assure you I’m not that old.
