Yesterday, when my son came home from kindergarten, I asked him about his school day. He told me that they played, sang, colored & also had a tomato drill.
Hmmmm. Tomato drill? I asked what he had for lunch. He listed every morsel on his food tray, but tomato was not mentioned. I twisted a few questions around to try to get more details from him, but he was quite definitive – he had a tomato drill at school.
Later, my daughter (who attends the same school as a fourth grader) translated. With the current lineup of tropical storms forming in the Atlantic Ocean, they conducted a TORNADO Drill. Good thinking – great try at a hard word by Peter – and rather lacking interpretive skills on my part.
