"Eh bien, mon petit. But you were always the best speller in Terrebonne Parish. But you know: Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose. And Good Time Boudreaux got the blues."
Tee Boudreaux smiled a little, and added, "Actually, I also got sent to detention."
"Eh, podner, I savvy. No penalty. What did you do?"
"Ah, Oncle Robichaux, I misspelled a word. ONE FRIGGIN' WORD!"
"Gosh, dat is trés harsh. Dat teacher is one mean woman. And what word was that?"
