Real Life Conversations with JT: Eat Your Veggies edition

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.

Has JT done any archival research on previous spelling lists? I assume this devious "Mrs W" is no spring chicken at social experimentation.
