Part of G's homework this week was to find antonyms for her spelling words. This worked fine for words like "scoundrel" and "allow," but became a problem when she got to words like "brownie" and "towel."
What the hell is the opposite of a towel?
I made her show me the actual assignment, thinking that perhaps her teacher had just said to find antonyms for words that had them. Nope. One antonym for each word on the list. So we got out the dictionary and thesaurus, but unsurprisingly, even Webster and Roget didn't have an antonym for "towel." BECAUSE THERE ISN'T ONE.
I'm going to be very curious to see what sort of mark she gets for writing down "being wet" in that space.
