09:58 am: Overheard in the Wright Household

Juss: "It's ironic that at the school where Steve Johnson teaches they have play with air-soft guns, have a war club, and one teacher has a bullwhip! While at my school, I got suspended for having a plastic spoon."

In the school's defense, it was a broken plastic spoon...slightly pointy.

In his defense, he also got suspended for making a complicated Naruto-ninja like gesture and muttering "I have a gun, and I'm afraid to use it."

Was he at least waving the slightly pointy spoon at someone? :D

Indeed. But he wasn't suspended for threatening another child...that's happened other times. He was suspended for pretending to have a gun.

It's (possibly) ironic that the child of two writers doesn't have a handle on what "ironic" means! Unless, Juss goes to Steve's school in which case: spot on! (Probably)

Usually it's such a muddle (and that doesn't even get into all the terms of art for irony in philosophical arguments, or in drama.

I think she takes it lightly (from reading an interview about it) and would laugh at the video as she was driven to the bank. ; )

When I was teaching, one day a student came to class with a sword. Because his next class was swordfighting.
