The reading lesson

So we’re reviewing words that end in -at.

Rhys: [Fat, pat, etc.]
Mama: What about a word that means a whiny, rude little kid?
Rhys: Fisher?
Mama: NO! That’s not true at all, and it’s not nice to say.
Rhys: I was just kidding. [thinks] Brat?
Mama: Right! But none of MY kids are brats.
Rhys: Nope. We’re good kids.
Mama: What do you think I would do if you acted like a brat?
Rhys: Throw us out the window and feed us to the dogs.

(I have no idea where he got that, but I’m glad he understands the importance of not acting like a brat….)

    See, now, these are the lessons one can only learn at home. If we are bratty, we are fed to the dogs. To algebra I say: ha!
