so i teach middle school. grades 6-8. lot's a fun and never a dull moment. recently, i was grading finals and one of the questions was "how do you know the word geology means the study of the earth?" responses could vary a bit but the idea was that the students would refer to the suffix and say they new because the suffix means...i had a student outright lie and i was on the floor in stitches. you may not think it as funny as i but his answer was "i know that...because i looked it up in the dictionary" keep in mind, no dictionaries were used. too funny and maybe a bit sad.

on another note, here are my favorite earrings as of late. made from seashell beads from an old bracelet, steel wire and little dyed shell birdies with purple matte seed beads.
