i. officially. know. NOTHING!

OH MY GOD!!! I am about to rant, so RUN for your lives!!

I am going to just put myself out there and tell it: I HATE FIRST GRADE HOMEWORK!!!!

I can honestly tell you that nothing makes me feel more stupid and inadequate than trying to help my SIX YEAR OLD son with his homework at night! NOTHING!

You wanna debate RAW vs. JPEG?? BRING IT! (or not, just ask poor Bruce T.!) What color space do you shoot in? Other nerdy, seemingly cerebral photography related topics? COME ON I SAY! And so WHAT if all I do is quote Kevin Kubota? At least I GET IT!!

But ask me what the HELL the difference between a blended consonant or a diagraph is???? HUH?? No. NO! SHHHHH.... I am NOT interested!

Wait. is SHHHHHH a diagraph or a blended freaking consonant???!!!

The icing??

Tonight's homework question:

"3. One word with long i is____________. The word is _____________."


Ummm. what? w.h.a.t.? W.H.A.T.??? The word is?? What word are you referring to???? The one I just TOLD you about, like RIGHT BEFORE? That one? Does IDIOT have a long i?

No. It does not.



Imbecile?

Long i's are totally over-rated. Size does not matter. DOES NOT.

After all the work of helping him out wait to see what happens when he is graded and blames you for the teacher marking his homework with something less than 100%. Then tell me how you feel, lol.

There has been times I have wanted to purchase the teachers guide!
