OH FOR THE LOVE OF PETE...

I just remembered that tomorrow is show and tell.  The way it works is they assign a letter, and the child is supposed to bring in an item that begins with that letter.  Here's the kicker - it can't be a toy.  I get that - it would be horribly disruptive.

This week's letter is "x."

I think that's just a teacher being mean.

We have a toy xylophone, but it's a toy.  What the hell else is there?

Seriously?  X?  The only things the internet is coming up with is "xylophone," "x-rays," and "x-men."

Oy.

Re: Um...
I actually thought of that. They're supposed to talk about the thing they bring in though, and she has no idea what a Xerox is.

Yes - Xerox set the standard for losing a trademark that all other companies now live in fear of. That's why the jingle now says "I am stuck on Band-Aid *brand*, 'cause Band-Aid's stuck on me."
