“What are you doing, Bessie?”
“I’m writing a letter to my friend Kitty”.
“But how can you? You don’t know how to write”.
 
“Well, it doesn’t matter, because Kitty doesn’t know how to read”.

“Have you read this lesson at home, Bob?” asked the teacher.
“Yes, Miss Brown”, answered Bob.
“Well, why don’t you know? Open your book and read what it says”.
