I was with a friend who has a young little girl last night. She was doing her homework and it included diagraming sentences (she goes to catholic school). i didn’t even think they did that anymore but it brought me back. And then it made me angry . . .
Damn those diagrams. The most ugly, boring, piece of education I have ever recieved. SOOOOOO glad I did it to those hundreds of sentences. Thank you Sister Mary Agnes for inflicting that hell upon us. Nothing we could do. If you don’t want the buisiness end of the ruler, diagram boy! never again. I’ll mak grammitical errors, spelling errors, Capitalization errors, all just to spite those god-awful diagrams. I hate diagrams. hate em Hate em hate em hate em.
then the shame. 9 year old asks me to help her with the diagrams. i can’t do it!!! can’t remember!!! All those hundreds of diagrams and it’s all blocked. Repressed. gone but not totally. Oh the hell. the hell.
Stop the scilence! Diagrams are wrong.
