I need a new profession.

So Abbie and I are sitting on the couch doing Algebra. We're working with radicals, and as you probably know, having a radical in the denominator of a fraction is a no-no, mathematically. So I pointed to one particular fraction and said, "What's wrong with this one?"

She replied, "It has a thingy in the bottom."

In my best teacher-voice, I gently reminded her, "Say it using mathematical terms. It has a radical in the denominator," expecting her to say it along with me, or at least repeat it after me. Her answer?


Where can I find a brick wall?

Be thankful ~

I'm somehow comforted by her refusal to use the correct terms.
