EXPLODING the code!
This leads to some fun conversations from time to time....consider this table school scenario.
"Zander can you READ these to me?" He does.
"Do you want to reconsider your answers?" He doesn't. I'm wondering if we have comprehension issues.
So we go sentence by sentence to see what may be going on.
Will Tom smile if he is sad?
"You marked, yes. Does a person smile when he's sad?"
"I do to hide my sadness."
OK - I can count that correct.
Can Jane drive home?
"You left this blank. You need to check yes or no."
"I don't KNOW if she can drive home. How old is she? Does she have a driver's license? Has she learned to drive?
OK - I can see that.
Can a cat slide into home plate?
"I'm not sure why you would let a cat have the plates from our home."
Will you get a snake as a snack?
I plan to buy an anaconda after I leave home, because you will never let me have one....and five minutes later I interrupted...."BUT WILL YOU EAT THE SNAKE?"
"I might - if it's not a good pet."
Living all of life before the face of God...
