Overheard.

A little girl, maybe 9 years old, was writing sentences with her vocabulary words when her teacher came by to check her work. The teacher picked up the paper and began to read the sentences quietly when she stumbled on something that didn't make sense. She handed the paper back to the girl and pointed to one of the sentences with her pencil.

"This right here doesn't make any sense," the teacher said, tapping the pencil for emphasis. "I was a parachute. What is that supposed to mean? Do you know what a parachute is?"

"Oh!" said the little girl, clapping her hand over her mouth and giggling at the mistake. "I thought that word was prostitute!"

Caution: school ahead.
