Too much?

Yesterday, my son threatened to throw me out the window. I told him that the word is "defenestrate." Can't wait for the note from his teacher next year.

It reminds me of the time I went to Frost's parent-teacher conference, and her teacher told me that during reading time, they had been discussing what the author was "inferring" in a suggestive bit of text. I bit my tongue, but told Frost about the difference between "inferring" and "implying" on the way out of the school.

Off to my immigration exam. Frankly, the folks crossing the Arizona border have a better chance of passing. Of course, they also have a little more at stake.
