Parent teacher conferences are always an interesting time, as seen in past posts. This year, a teacher was explaining about a novel she was reading with her class. The novel is Harris and Me and is about some boys and the trouble they get into. She was explaining that the student might be able to get into it because it was silly. "If you don't mind me saying," she explained, "They do things like blowing up a frog."
"Oh, that's fine," was Herman's mother's response, "I got a frog drunk once. Herman wouldn't know about that cause I was only young when I did it, but I got a frog drunk."
