Speaking of Things Unrelated to the Topic

So Judith, Rebecca, and I are walking down a suburban street, and I sneeze loudly.
"Bless you," says Judith, "in your nook!" She pantomimes sneezing and tucking her face into the crook of her elbow. I gather she does this a lot with her second graders. "IN YOUR NOOK!" She repeats herself as if to make even this half-wit understand.
I look innocent. "But I only have a Kindle."
