Literary Theory killed my humor last night, so instead if drumming up my own funnies, I offer comic relief from the interwebs:
Yesterday Jeremy’s math book took him in the direction of geometry. He was introduced to the concept of perpendicular and parallel lines. What the what? I shuddered with fear on the memory of tenth grade geometry with Mrs. Akins. Despite Mrs. Akins’ sweet demeanor and her endless effort to help me understand proofs, I barely squeaked through the class… with a C.
(I can’t believe I just confessed that to you, Reader. I typically don’t expose my academic dirty laundry, but the first step in recovering from mediocre grades is admitting you had them.)
While I’m not entirely sure why perpendicular and parallel lines were part of this week’s lesson, I’m happy to report that we’re back to simple division today and sailing along. However, this cartoon, I fear, could be a foreshadowing of things to come.
Here lies a homeschooling mom defeated by math…
