His Superior Intellect Will Serve Him Beyond Sophomore English

Nine weeks tests are today and there are questions on the test about nouns.

Identify the type of noun.

One question reads:

The muffins with the blueberries are sold out.

Which type of noun is it?
a. abstract
b. common

Kid asks me if this is a trick question.

"No, look at the answers. Can you touch a blueberry? Can you taste it?"

"Nope." says Kid. "Not these. They sold out."

How did my daughter get to OKC?

Lord have mercy! What if the boy had had to go pick those dang blueberries? Then what? "No, blueberries, Ms. Educat. The bears done got 'em all. So they must be abstract, right?"

"Ms. Cornelius" said...

Well, duh. You walked into that one.
