Not exactly, dear

Today I was explaining musical sequences to one of my students. It is where you take the same musical pattern and repeat it multiple times. I asked her if she had ever heard of the word "sequence" before. She nodded quite enthusiastically. Surprised, since I expected to need to define it, I asked her what it meant. All seriousness, she looked at me and said, "It's those shiny things on shirts."

I'm glad I asked.
