Combining Yesterday's Taraday with Today's

A second grade teacher explained to her class that, now that winter break was over, they were going to make a special effort to use grown-up words during show and tell.

Today's show and tell would be about what the kids had done during the winter break.

The first child announced that he'd gone for a ride on a choo-choo.

The teacher asked if he could think of a more grown-up word for the vehicle he'd ridden.

"I went for a ride on a train," said the child. Then, beaming, he added "it was a locomotive."

The teacher praised him and moved on to the next child.

She announced that she'd gone to Nana's house.

Again the teacher asked if the child could use a more grown-up word and the little girl said "I visited with family at my grandmother's house."

This won the little girl praise, as well.

The teacher saw a kind of strange, gleeful look on the next child's face. Forging ahead, she asked what he'd done over the winter break.

With a sparkle in his eye, he announced: "I read Winnie the Shit."

That, incidentally, is how Winnie's ex-wife refers to him.
