Yesterday, I handed my assignment to the professor as I was reaching the deadline. For some reason it took a while for her to check my paper, which made me uneasy, but eventually she looked at me in awe, mouth agape, and said:
Wow! You really surprised me! Now I think I don't know you at all. Who are you? Seriously!
Startled by her question, I blurted out:
Just an ordinary person?!
She nodded in disbelief and said:
No, you're more than one ordinary person!
Now I wonder what she really meant by that. Did she mean I'm better than an ordinary person, or she was teasing me as if I'm pregnant? After all, she could use "an" instead of "one"?
