My mom watches my kids on Monday nights, while I teach at the prison... tonight my brother was hanging out there as well. Apparently my oldest, Megan, was acting a bit goofy.... she asked Uncle David if she was dumb and of course he said no... so she said 'am I stupid'... always the kind uncle... he said he had to look it up in order to give a correct assessment of her stupidity.
Well... apparently one definition of the word stupid is 'acting silly or foolish'... so indeed, she was behaving stupidly. AUGH! Do you know how hard I have worked to eradicate words like: stupid, dumb, hate, can't, etc? So now, because of my loving brother, Megan has a new definition of the word and a correct way to use it. I can't wait until he has kids of his own!
