Python Python Collections (2016, retired 2019) Slices sillyCase

Just getting a "Bummer Try again!" message. Difficult to know whats wrong without feedback

I've written code that I think should be working. I can't figure out what's wrong.

def sillycase(args1):
    i = int(len(args1)/2)

    first = args1[:i]
    last = args1[i:]
    lower = first.lower()
    upper = last.upper()

    return lower + upper

This looks OK to me, so I pasted it directly into the challenge and it passed!

Try again?

I copied and pasted the same thing in again and it worked!

Odd, that's the second question today that worked without any changes. Perhaps the validation mechanism had some temporary issue.
