Identifying the One

Shortened period/long assignment. They were allowed to talk, but most of them were too busy to engage in conversation. The inevitable lull occurred.

"Why did it get so quiet in here?"

I looked at the boy. "Oh, so you're the one," I said.

He didn't get it. I didn't explain. The jokes are mostly for me anyway. They never see the funny.
