There have been enough silly episodes of various sitcoms where a terribly irresponsible character is taking a class and is tasked with taking home some delicate object like a sack of flour, and caring for it as if it were a baby. Usually things go terribly, terribly wrong.
I’m really hoping that doesn’t happen in our household, but I’m keeping our deep fryer stored in a cupboard just in case.
You see, our older son was given a bit of homework for his math class involving taking care of a potato as if it were his child. A potato. We tried so, so hard, but the jokes and puns just started frying- er, FRYing right away. Our little grandspud is such a cute little tot after all. We finally decided she was a girl, and of course a name came to mind immediately: Julianne.
Anyways, it’s an amusing project. Have any of you ever had to deal with something similar? Any good stories out there? We’d love to hear them!
