Anne-with-an-e is taking an anatomy class.
"Mom," she said, "this class has given me the opportunity to say things to my classmates that I never thought I'd have to say."
"Like what?" I asked.
The following are actual (or very close facsimiles of) things she said today:
"I'll go get us some femurs."
"Oh, look. A pile of knee caps."
"Could you pass me a rib?"
"Here's a leg, in case you need one."
"I have two right clavicles here. Where's a left one?"
"Can I borrow this tibia?"
In contrast, the most interesting thing I said today was, "I'd better change my shirt before dinner. I just know I'm going to dribble pizza sauce on myself."
