Language acquisition is interesting. There are so many phrases in English that we just don't realize are confusing to new language learners.
I just got back from dropping off 5 kids at the church for a weekend away, leaving only 3 at home because Rand is gone to work. When I returned, Jimmy walked into my office and said, "wow, mom. This is kinda weird."
"Yup, hardly anyone here," I responded, to which he replied,
"we're going to have a pretty nice two-day weekend, aren't we?"
