Katie had homework tonight. It was the start of a measuring unit in the math book. She had to write down objects that you use to measure things.
Katie wrote down, in her meticulous handwriting, “R-U-L-E-R.”
Chris suggested “Measuring Cup.” That was a little harder for Katie to spell.
Next was “Tire Gauge.” My wife had to explain the what that measured.
I turned to the ladies on the loveseat and suggested “Brannock Device.”
My wife was not amused.
