“I don’t need to know it for tomorrow.”

The other day a student came into school exhausted. She had had a dance class and CCD the night before and was so tired when she got home that she went straight to bed without studying for a test she was going to take the next day. She decided it would be better to get up at 3:00am and study until school started. I asked:

“Do you remember anything that you studied?”

“Yes, it is fresh in my head from studying all morning.”

“But will you remember it tomorrow?

“I don’t need to know it for tomorrow.”

She knows the rules of the game, and I am not mad at her for playing by them.
