Darla, Buckwheat, and Alfalfa were in class and the teacher said they were going to play a word game. The teacher would ask one student how to spell a word, and then ask another student to use the word in a sentence.
The teacher asked Alfalfa to spell the word *dictate*.
Alfalfa thought a minute, then answered 'd-i-c-t-a-t-e'.
The teacher said 'thats excellent, Alfalfa'.
Then the teacher said 'Buckwheat, please use 'dictate' in a sentence.
Buckwheat paused and then said 'Darla, how my dictate lat nite?'
