To Kill a Mocking Bird

Helping the teen with an essay on her thoughts of the novel To Kill a Mocking Bird.

She quotes someone’s speech and, I asked who this person was.

“She’s not important!”

“Why’s she even mentioned then. Why did the boy have to read for her?”

“It was punishment”

“For what?”

“Because he cut her bush.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Nearly fell off my chair and honestly couldn’t speak for laughing, and then….. she realised why.

I told her no way on this God’s earth was I letting her leave that sentence in it like that and made her find what type of bush it was she was speaking about. It was a Camellia bush …pheeeeew. Gonna have a heart attack from laughing so much one of these days 🙂
