You know when you're learning a new word and try to use it as much as possible? A kid in my class was fixated on 'respect' and over-used it. I would literally cringe every time he opened his mouth, because I knew that word would eventually be used.
Well, my word was 'embarrassed'. While I didn't try to insert it often, I wasn't really sure of the definition. But when my beloved Mrs. H announced we were going to be split up into groups and create different things, I was excited to be assigned to the Book group. We would try to write a story, and Mr. H would be our group leader.
We sat in a circle at a table and tried to brainstorm ideas for our story. Characters were decided, and a basic plot. I found my opening and asked if the main character could be embarrassed, and was finally told what it meant. I also learned my mind went blank during those verbal brainstorming sessions, I didn't really contribute anything. I don't even think our story ever got written.
I do remember seeing a short film that one group put on as they created their own Star Trek episode. And I noticed one of the other girls in my group ended up being in it, but not understanding why.
Weather warmed up to 50s today! We'll be celebrating the youngling's 10th birthday with his grandparents (last weekend was just simply too icy), and I SHOULD be able to go to karaoke.
Songs will be the same as last week's:
Ghost Riders In the Sky (Outlaws)
You Haven't Seen The Last of Me (Cher) OR Miracle (Jon Bon Jovi)
Girl Can't Help It (Journey)
Genie In a Bottle (Christina Agulara and only if Mel comes)
Girls Just Want To Have Fun (Cyndi Lauper)
