...we had a couple of hours to entertain ourselves. The "we" being me, Table of Stone, our sweet Mama D., Elyow'enay, and BirdTrainer. I brought along 4th Grade Brain Quest, just to be silly and to add a little diversity to our car games, since we usually break out Bible Trivia at some point. We just keep it in the van and quiz ourselves at random. (I'm a nerd/dork/geek/whatever...I know.)
Now, in fourth grade, this Brain Quest set was very hard. There are questions like 1)Is cabbage stem, leaves, or root? or 2) What is the simplest form of 1/8 + 1/8? or 3)Who sang songs like Hey Jude and Let It Be? But as we read through them in the car, we laughed and answered most all of them without problem. I guess you could say it was our own version of Are You Smarter Than a Fourth Grader?
The following is an excerpt of our conversation:
Owl of the Desert: Before becoming President, was Abraham Lincoln a lawyer or a teacher?
Elyow'enay: Abraham Lincoln was a pimp!
BirdTrainer: "Yo, Mary! Go fix me some bread, 'cuz I'm skinny as a rail!"
Good times...oh, yeah.
