Potpourri

I finally got to see Walk the Line last night. Joaquin could become the next Swooner Dreamboat, that's all I gotta say.

I liked the flick, but to be honest it was kind of hard to hear it. I was watching on my laptop and Husband had Frodo-fest TURNED UP REALLY LOUD on the TV. I had to mash the geeky old headphones into my ears just to hear anything. Damn hobbits.

So, let me ask you this, if someone shows you the word "live" do you say it as "I live in Ohio" or would you say "That was a live interview?" Son had that word in his vocabulary quiz yesterday and missed it...because he didn't know which pronunciation to use. He got a B, his first such grade in vocab.

I don't see this as a bad thing, I mean, the kid devours books and I think he reads at a much higher level than the teacher gives him credit for.

That's it. I stayed up way too late last night; I need more coffee.

Usually with the long "I". Often in advertising, it's featured on one line, followed by another line saying "bait" or "nude girls" or "in concert", something along those lines.

But I think that teacher should have given credit either way due to the two possibilities.

Well, I am taking Son to school on Monday; I'll discuss this with the teacher.

Think there would be an issue with "deer" or "fish" where it could be sinular or plural?!

Unless the teacher specified only the one use, credit should have been given.

I agree that if the teacher expected one specific answer, the pronunciation should have been made clear. Otherwise, either answer should be acceptable. Don't punish the student for the teacher's ambiguity.
