"Hello, Smarty Pants!" (preschool teacher to The Dormouse as I dropped her off yesterday)

Then she looks at me and says, "I call her Smarty Pants because yesterday I was reading a book to them and in the book there was a lemon meringue pie. And I was pronouncing it 'mar-in-jah'. And Smarty Pants told me 'No, that's not how you say it. You say 'meh-rang'. And later I asked someone how to pronounce this word and she was right! How did she know that?"

Me: "Um... you were reading Amelia Bedelia, right?"

Teacher: "Yes."

Me: "We read that book at home." Unspoken: ...and I know how to pronounce it.
