“Mommy, That’s Absurd!”

One of my tasks as Ricki’s (unofficial) special education supervisor, is to prepare tests for her studies. This week she was to have a test, and I made a pre-test study page as well. As she was answering the questions on the sheet, she suddenly stopped.
MAH ZEH?!?” (What in the blazes IS this??!!??) She read aloud one of the “wrong” answers of a multiple choice question. “Mommy, this is ridiculous! How absurd!”
And she continued, rather incensed, to grill me on why I had written something so stupid on the worksheet, implying rather horrendous and sinister results if said practice was repeated.
I think I better rephrase that one…….

I hope you don't find this offensive, but:

My son, who is in third grade in a mainstream public school class, studies with a rebbe after school. His rebbe gives him homework. One of the questions was apparently too easy for him. "Which of Yaakov's wives did he love more?" His answer: "Rachel". (Then erased on the line below "Duh".)
