Another Great Language Mistake

So today in class I had a student named "Masaki". He's been my student
for almost a year now, and I should know his name.

But I was in a hurry today, and I called him "masaka" by mistake.
"Masaka" means "no kidding?". I realized my mistake almost immediately.
The whole class laughed. Luckily he was laughing too.

Do you see how difficult Japanese can be? ;)
