I was testing my son on his spelling just last evening. The teacher had given them a list of commonly misspelled words and I wanted him to make sure that he didnt misspell those words in the coming exams.
So, we were going thru' it alphabetically starting with the 'A' words then the 'B' words, and so on.
It was getting to be quite a laborious affair, as he hadnt studied the list well, and I was re-testing him those words that he spelled wrongly earlier along the way just to make sure that he had learnt his mistake!
He, on the other hand, was getting impatient as the Chelsea vs Liverpool match was about to start, and I had told him that he wasnt going to watch it until we had finished the 1st page of words.
In his haste to finish it, he wasnt writing his words properly, and I was getting irritated.
Not able to stand his bad writing any longer, I said to him : All these 'F' words do not start with the letter 'T'!!(he was not curving his letter "f" properly and they all looked like "T" to me!!)
S and N both cracked up on hearing that!
"You said 'F' words Mum!" they shouted, laughing hysterically and we couldnt continue with the spelling practice anymore!!
I tell you these kids!
