Some Pencils Are Duller Than Others
A scene from tonight's episode of "Homework 'Round the Kitchen Table":
#1 son, (ten years old) was doing some Hebrew Chumash homework, and questioning the spelling of some words. I moved a little closer to see his workbook and noticed that his handwriting was not as nice as I'd seen it...before the winter/Chanukah school break. Normally it's very neat and clean, both in Hebrew and in English.
Me: "Hey, A, what's with your schoolwork?"
Me: "You used to write nicer in Hebrew. What happened?"
A: (without missing a beat) "Duller pencils."
