  2. Like the time I was finally getting my new desk, and the police department agreed to take my old desk to use as an evidence station. Eight cops came to get the monstrosity out, and they wondered aloud if they could take the top part off. I announced to all and sundry that I would take ANYTHING off if it would get that thing out of my room.

  3. I used to teach 7th grade English. One of the activities in their workbook, which I remembered to skip starting my 2nd year, involved sentences about golf. They were supposed to underline the adjective and draw an arrow to the word it described. We went over the answers: "I underlined leather and it describes ball," "Dimpled describes ball" ... you get the idea.

    Whoever writes these textbooks should beta test them with middle schoolers.
