Junior psychologist and a rowdy grammar lesson...

We read Noah's Ark by Peter Spier (which I highly recommend) this morning.  One of the illustrations shows Noah trying to pull a belligerent donkey into the ark...
David:  Why doesn't the donkey want to go into the ark? (He's particularly confused because a later picture shows animals outside the closed ark and wanting to get in.)
Me:  Donkeys are just that way.  Even if you try to get them to do something they like, they always fight it.
David:  Maybe he just wants to decide to go in for himself.
Me:  (Inner dialogue) You are your father's child.
A linking verbs lesson gone awry...
"Mommy is tooting thunderously loud."

"David's spanking was thunderously loud."
