On Writing

Oh, the joy of sophomore year. (As an aside, is there an emoticon for sarcasm?)

Youngest sprog’s first writing project was assigned on Friday. Tally so far:

Hours at the computer: about nine

Pages completed: about one

Hairs left on my head: about six

Darling husband’s blood pressure:  340/180

And though I know the probable reason for the assignment from his US history teacher, do fifteen year olds really, truly have any inkling of what it means to be an American? Do they have any experience outside of our country? Won’t they just parrot what their parents or guardians tell them? Is it possible for them to fill two to three pages, double spaced?

No, mostly no, probably, and perhaps. In case you were wondering.
