The teacher asked the class to use the word ‘fascinate’ in a
sentence.Molly put up her hand and said,
“My family went to my granddad’s farm, and we all saw his
pet sheep. It was fascinating.”
The teacher said, “That was good, but I wanted you to use
the word ‘fascinate, not fascinating.”
Sally raised her hand and said, “My family went to see Rock
City and I was fascinated.”
The teacher said, “Well, that was good Sally, but I wanted
you to use the word ‘fascinate.”
Little Johnny raised his hand. The teacher hesitated. She
had been burned by Little Johnny before.
She decided there was no way he could damage the word
‘fascinate’, so she called on him.
Johnny said, “My aunt Gina has a sweater with ten buttons,
but her Tata’s are so big she can only fasten eight.”
The teacher sat down and cried.
