ah yes, my 2nd grade book report. the second grade refers only to the age but not the quality. the quality was first grade, if you count comedy as quality. i had to do a book report about white fang. let me tell you that i loved that white fang! (by the way, just one fang?) i put a lot of passion and heart into that report. i reached from the depth of my tiny 2nd grade heart and poured out a literary masterpiece. the words flowed out effortlessly. it was an in-class book report. i brought it home to proudly show my mom. she nearly hit the floor, it was great. but it was great for one reason...a spelling error on my part-that forever will haunt me. my book report was not about white fang at all...but white fag. yes, that's right, white fag. someone wash my mouth out with soap! yes, i forgot the "n" in each and every fang. sigh. thanks a lot mrs. stevenson for throwing me under the bus on that one!
my mom's favorite line? " i love white fag. white fag is brave and strong."
this post was brought to you by the letter "n".
