You know it's the end of the school day when…

you are quizzing your child in past history lessons and you get the following answers to the following questions:

Q: How did Chinese customs make their way to Japan.
A: By boat?

(Well… I guess in a round about way, they probably did!) **sigh**

….Different chapter…….

Q: Muhammad wasn’t just a prophet of Islam. What other jobs did he have in Medina?
A: Ummm… Err… I can’t think of this one… the first answer that popped in my brain was, “Mail boy.” (Mom and boy both break out into uproarious laughter.) But I don’t think that was probably right.

Indeed no.

***Sigh***

Then he went on to read his next chapter in Famous Men of the Middle ages and as he closed the book he announced, “Pope Gregory was a non-haired man.”

****double sigh****

Class dismissed!
