Hello Dear Readers! Join me now won’t you as we answer Questions from Lesson 32:
Just to briefly bring you up to speed on Lesson 31 first, it apparently involved auxiliary verbs and forming negatives in the past tense. Well, don’t even think about Lesson 31. Because Lesson 31 is the kind of lesson that makes a person hate school with all their heart and soul and the kind of a lesson that sucks every molecule of fun out of life. So we will think no more of it and simply go to the Lesson 32 where we are asked to answer some questions.
Ok, first of all, your question sounds a bit accusatory to me. Are you accusing me of making the teacher sick? I wasn’t even there the day the teacher got sick. But oh no, the minute something happens to a teacher every one points a finger at the Voodoo Practitioner! Typical! Just because I own and operate Stick a Needle in YOUR Eye, Voodoo Sales and Service– everybody blames me for every little mysterious ache and pain. Besides the teacher isn’t sick, the teacher is lying on an army cot in the back room in a catatonic state with a Tootsie Roll Pop in his mouth. So stop jumping to conclusions and use your common sense for once!
Of course we saw some wild animals when we went to the park yesterday! What are you, nuts? In fact, there were some children going down the slide when a huge orangutan pushed them all off and slid down himself! Ha ha! Then little Johnny almost got gored by that charging rhino, but a miss is as good as a mile, and we all got a good laugh out of that one! (You should have seen the funny expression on both Little Johnny’s face and the charging rhino’s — it will be a long time coming deciding which one was funnier!) So in answer to your silly question of did we see some wild animals at the park yesterday? Duh, hello!?! Earth to Lesson 32!
Maybe you didn’t hear. . . John was fatally injured trying to catch a toaster yesterday, and it was just too hot to drag him along.
How should I know? I was at the zoo, remember? You haven’t been listening to a single word, have you?
What are you stalker or something? You seem a little obsessed with Helen. I don’t know Helen, personally, but I bet you anything she wants you to go away and never darken her door again! (And don’t be surprised if you suddenly start experiencing some mysterious aches and pains.) If you’re not Helen’s stalker, the answers are: yes, down the street, and about 45 minutes.
And there you have it, Dear Readers, the answers to Lesson 32! And here you thought you didn’t like school!
Until next time . . . I love you

I loved school – but those questions (and mostly the memories of those drawings that accompanied the questions) gave me anxiety! Luckily your comical answers relieved the stress – and reminded me that I left the 4th grade behind eons ago! I still can’t help but go cross-eyed over past-participle-present-conjunction-whatever!
Loving school! I never understood that concept. Don’t get me wrong there were a few minutes here and there I enjoyed thoroughly, but mostly I just wanted it to end!
Wow you were studying all that in 4th grade? The only thing I can remember about the subject matter of fourth grade is being asked what the Mayflower compact was and being absolutely stumped about it and still am to this day! 😀
Haha! I feel so refreshed with lesson 32!
Can you imagine what the teacher would think if she had someone turn in a paper with those answers! LOL!!!
*I just noticed at the bottom of the lesson it talks about auxiliary verbs. I think that’s the first time I’ve ever heard that term! Haha!
What? Auxiliary verbs? I can’t even imagine what those were (or are?)! HA I would love to be able to go back to school just for one day and take an essay test! Oh the fun we could have messing with our teacher’s minds! In fact, I would love to go back to school for one day in high school just to see if it was really as bad as I remember. I’d probably be totally suprised to find that I actually liked school!
Why am I anonymous? That keeps happening. I think it’s the teachers, come to mess with MY mind! 😀
What? Wha- no, why, what? I DIDN’T DO IT!!!!
ASK THE VOODOO LADY!!!
May I be excused now?
Yes you may be excused to go wash you’re mouth out with soap and when you return Lisa is A Gripping Life is going to teach you about auxiliary verbs and remember The Voodoo Lady is watching!
And who gave me the schedule with a Drawing Lady/Voodoo Lady double period???
Haha! Well there’s actually a very funny story behind that EG, but you’ll have to wait until I make it up!
I quite enjoyed this post. I agree 100% with you that school had a way of making one cross eyed. I think they make it confusing on purpose. Why would I need to know which verb will be the cosign of the conjucted past tense pronoun? If I was a teacher, I’d give you and A PLUS for accurately portraying the wacky life of Helen, Johnny and his zoo friends.
A past tense pronoun!! That’s the most original grammar term in the history of talking! This is the proudest moment of my life as a mother. You should drive up! We’ll celebrate! Johnny and Helen and the zoo friends have already RSVP’d. So it should be a blast!
If only you were my English teacher in school, MAYBE I would have hated the subject a little less 🙂
Aw thanks RC. Oh the fun we would have! 😀
Excellent, excellent. And I think you’ve answered a question that wasn’t even asked: namely, why is it you spent so much time in the principal’s office when you were a kid? Yes, I think that’s coming into focus, you delightfully naughty girl, you!! : )
Mark! You’re uncanny ability to not only read between the lines but to focus correctly on the truth makes me want to know where it is you got your glasses! I need a pair of those LOL!
