What's the point?

You know how, when you're learning a language, the teacher asks you all sorts of questions just to give you practice? Maddy said on the walk home last night, "It gets so irritating. My teacher keeps asking me in Spanish 'What's your mother's name?' I keep telling her but she must forget. And if she wants to know your name so much, why doesn't she just ask you?"

Good point, young friend.
