That's what my professor called me last night in class. And I kinda liked it. Got the nickname because I knew what an appositive was in the translation when it was my turn. Funny, because the girls and I just learned it yesterday in our grammar lesson.
(We do identify parts of speech in our grammar curriculum, but so far we're not diagramming sentences, though I wish we were. I think it's actually pretty fun. Yes, yes, I know. But there are some of you out there who think it's fun too. Right?!)
Can't wait until the girls get up so I can tell them it showed up in my class. It's funny how often things we study in grammar show up in my Greek class that same week. The fact that they know what an antecedent is when grown-ups in my class sometimes don't makes them feel really, really smart.
And feeling smart makes them want to learn more. Pretty neat how that works.
P.S. I loved hearing where you keep your library books.
P.S.2. And I also loved hearing about your Christmas decorating plans. There's snow outside this morning (not much, but the lawn is lightly covered) and it's making me wonder if today would be a good day to decorate for Christmas. And also wonder if I should skip my run and just stay in my jammies and have school by the fire and under an afghan.
Saw someone's Twitter (think it was yours, Miss Chris) about loving twinkle lights. Which makes me want to put some up. And which also makes me think about You've Got Mail. Which I did end up watching the other day after all.
P.S.3. I think I've officially crossed the line into rambling on. So I'll just stop now and say,
"Happy Wednesday, bloggy friends!"
