Being a little short on time this week, and not having watched anything with Jason Momoa in it since Justice League, I decided to revisit that giant stack of old elementary school papers that my folks sent to me a while back. Seriously, it’s an even bigger pile of papers than my rejection file. Check it out:
Anyway, the thing on top of the elementary school paper pile was a folder about “the five senses”*, which was mostly things where I had to write “the eyes make it possible for us to see” and “the nose makes it possible for us to smell”** and “the tongue makes it possible for us to taste” on that big lined elementary school paper. You know, this kind of thing:
And then there was this:
What was this for, elementary school anatomy class? If so, the illustrations leave a little something to be desired … But in any case, holy hell those are a couple of ten-dollar words for a seven-year-old! “Hypoglossal”? “Glossopharyngeal”? And yet the one I spelled wrong was, apparently, “esophagus”, presumably because I had to look the first two up but thought I knew how to spell the last one. (We’ll just skate over the fact that I spelled “separated” as “seperated” in the first document.)
Ah, the old days when if you had a dictionary in your pocket you were a total nerd, instead of just a regular person with a smartphone …
* Which obviously excludes the one where you see dead people.
** As do the feet and armpits.
