What the Hell? Our nation goes into recession and suddenly third graders have to know times tables up to twelve! This IS NOT helping the recession. Poor, hardworking parents--just making it by--have to worry about putting food on the table AND looking like idiots in front of their kids. I've stayed up nights studying. I can't even remember half of the math problems I used to know.
I'd battled my own self-worth until I couldn't count ones correctly. "I'm sorry." I smiled, hiding my pain and handing him another dollar. "Every time I've had a baby I've lost a fourth of my brain." Then I threw in some math skills--just to feel competent. "I've had five kids--you do the math. Now I'm in the negative."
"That isn't true," The Hippie said to me and the clerk.
"Sure it is," the clerk said without missing a beat as he turned to my daughter. "Where do you think your brain came from?"
Thank God for the movie store. I told you that's the best place for kids to get an education!
So if you're a kid reading this and you googled "Why is it so hard to start homework?" The answer is, because it's painful, but you have to do it--so you can be witty like the clerk at the movie store. Seriously, awesomeness does exist and the man just proved it.
Onto other news, Wayman Publishing has a Facebook page. But they need likes. If you have a chance can you like their page because it'll bring good karma your way--honestly it's worth a shot!
In closing, I'm trying to amass my army--well not really but that sounded cool.
