Just Popped Right Out

So there I was, sitting in my Word Roots: Green and Latin Suffixes class. As you might have guessed from the name... it's not the most exciting of subjects. Class involves going over the homework, one question at a time.

But that doesn't mean we don't have fun. My teacher is a master of puns and really bad jokes. And best of all, he tells these horrible jokes in such a captivating way that we're all leaning forward in our desks, both eager for and dreading the pun-tastic punchline.

Anyways, in class we were going over the homework and we came to a rather long word with 5 different parts to be divided up. And he counted out loud. "Look at this word. Look at how many parts it has. One. Two. Three. Four. Five."

And that's when I channeled my inner Count and responded with "Ha..ha...ha..."

The class lost it for a good 5-10 minutes while our poor prof looked so confused. I guess Sesame Street is after his time.

Fun! Been watching old school Sesame Street, Electric Company and Muppet Show vids on you tube with the kids lately, so fun.

Hope classes are going well.
