Reason #458 that my children are not homeschooled.

I'd be tired from training them to kickass in spelling bees and coming up with recipes for my baking blog, so I'd order pizza instead of making the asparagus and salmon I'd planned.

I'd worry that I was going to waste the asparagus and it would get all wilty (although I'd use a word other than wilty because I'd have a thesaurus on the kitchen counter) so I would stick the asparagus in some water overnight.




I'd get up in the morning to find crazy alien asparagus has decided to mutate and I'd change the lesson plan for the day to "Investigations into Creepy Asparagus that Obviously has Intentions to EAT US."




I think we're all better off with someone else handling their education.

  2. The light. Go toward the light.

    I think your asparagus is sentient. You should worry.

  3. Asparagus! Doesn't it make your pee smell funny? I heard that. I hope it's not just me then.

  4. This keen observation of the unusual is EXACTLY why you'd be an awesome homeschooler.

  5. Okay, that's kinda creepy. And yes, Debbie, asparagus makes the pee stink, but only some people can smell it. Wierd.

  7. You're way ahead of me. I fell in love with the idea of homeschooling and then realized I had no skills and that it was better if I had some alone time during the day to work. Public school makes me a better parent.

  8. Just the times I've had to play Lite Brite with my nephews would be enough to scare me off of home schooling.

  9. Oh great. Now I can never say "ok, um, I'll tell you ONE THING I know for sure I'm not afraid of: asparagus."

  10. Oh, too funny! I won't be homeschooling either. Because mutant asparagus is everywhere these days...
