The backstory: It is a well-known fact that JT maintains only a passing acquaintance with vegetables in his diet, preferring to stick with carbo-loading for his 3rd grade training needs. Thus, I was slightly amused when the word 'vegetable' appeared on last week's spelling list.
Mama: Vegetable, huh? How did that word end up on your list?
JT: I KNOW (expressed in an exaggerated, indignant tone). Mrs. W might as well have assigned me to spell poison.
It's only a matter of time before the child contracts scurvy.
