MARIANNE STORIES #38

As my friend Marianne found out, it's nice when people think you're a genius.

June 18
Two of my boys were volunteering at the Summer Reading Game table. They have volunteered for me for years. As I always do, I gave them the Word for the Day and told them to look it up in the dictionary. The word was obsequious. I came back 10 minutes later to find them still at the dictionary. 

"Did you guys look it up?" 

 "Yeah, Ms. B, but we didn't understand what it said." 

"You didn't understand? Why?" 

"Well, it used a word we don't know so we have to look that up." 

"Oh, I see. Might the word be fawn?" 

One of them said, "How did you know that?" The other replied, "Don't you know by now she knows everything? She IS the dictionary!"
