Just a funny kid story

I have a son in the second grade. I his music class they are learning a “big word” song. It’s second grade, remember, so the “big words” are adept, excellent, vainglorious, diminuitive, juvenile… words like that.

Anyway, we’ve been talking about so called, big words for a couple of days and I used the word, defunct. I asked him if he knew what that word meant.

He said, “Not funking working?”


Reminds me of my fourth grader, who upon learning my husband was working on geneology, asked: “Is he studying to be a genie?”
