I'm all for being educated.

Really, I am.

But you know, I don't ever recall when I was in the 4th grade having to make my own electrical circuit board. Or rather, having to get my parents to make me my own electrical circuit board.

Cat's class is studying electricity, and doing a good job of it, it seems. None of that dangerous (but nonetheless enlightening) experimentation I did as a child with screwdrivers and live outlets, but still, it seems they're learning something.

Particularly about circuits. And they've got an assignment that's due Friday morning to create one of those little match-up game things with a sheet of questions and answers linked on the backside by aluminum foil strips.

It's not really hard to do and I do know how to make them, but it's not exactly one of those things that you just let an inattentive 9-year-old loose on with a pair of scissors, some tape, and aluminum foil. And that's not even considering that you also have to get together some colorful questions and answers to put on the thing.


Yet another assignment. If I don't get an A on it, I'm gonna be upset.

Sounds like you need a special edition of Tuesday 2: Questions for Cat's Magic Buzzy Board

1. How many US Presidents have been impeached?
(NOTE: Not how many actually deserved it.)

2. True of false: Trussville is named after a bridge part.

I asked her if she wanted to do something like state capitals, and she said she wanted to do something else. But she wouldn't tell me what, exactly.
