umm … aahh … that came out wrong, didn’t it?

A tutor just came in to ask me about some essays that students have submitted recently. One essay appeared to have missed the ink of the “Received” stamp, and he needed this to be rectified (because students do tend to be creative in regard to reporting the dates on which their essays have actually been submitted).

What words came out of my mouth to respond to this request?

“So, you want a date then?”

Fortunately, we both saw the amusing side of this statement and it was not followed by any awkward silences. Still, makes me laugh!
