My daughter needed help with some math she was doing. She was becoming quite agitated and frustrated with her word problems, so she decided to put those down for a while, finish her English work, then come back to it.

I asked, “What do you have to do for English?

Use vocabulary words in sentences.

What sorts of words.


Ooooh. That’s a good word. I have lots of ideas for that one.

Maaaah-uh-om. They have to be school APPROPRIATE.

Whatever the hell THAT means.

So, I decided to drink copious amounts of wine and prove to her that I could still do those damn word problems, mostly correctly.

    Sime of them were pretty hard. I understand her frustration with them. Plus there were so many.
