Go ahead and make fun of this kid, but I'm on his side. One you have the "and" stuck in your head (as in "hand"), you can't get it out of there. Why is is spelled "wand" anyway? Shouldn't it be "wond"? That "a" shouldn't even be there. Should be an "o" as in bond, song, donkey, and kong.
English is a tough language. I prove that every day.
