Anyway, last night, he got stuck on the word soap.
I suggested, "I use soap in the shower."
Clay looked at me blankly.
I suggested, "You need to wash your hands with soap."
He stared at me, a vacant look on his face.
I said, "I give up. Think of a sentence and write it! You could've been done with your homework an hour ago if you'd Just! Do! It!"
Another twenty minutes passed before he'd finally managed to finish the sentence. This is what he wrote. . .
It says, I use soap when I go poo.
His teacher has got to wonder about us.
