HOMEWORK/LA TAREA

FYI: “I didn’t know we had homework” will no longer be accepted as a response to “Where is your homework?” I also will not accept the following excuses: My dog ate it, I was caught in traffic, I was solving world hunger (ok,I might accept this if you can prove it), my parents said I didn’t have to do homework (yeah right), I got kidnapped by zombies last night and woke up alone in a cornfield near the US border (provide pictures if this is true), I have the sniffles (I will provide you with tissues), my computer wasn’t working, or I was too tired because I went to a concert (unless I think the artist you saw is amazing AND you had a chance to meet and hangout with them and their band after the show)
