30 Seconds

The maximum amount of time (I counted) Logan can concentrate on homework without pausing to:

~ Share his thoughts on whether Bilbo Baggins was evil to covet the Ring or whether he was merely overcome by the Ring's power.

~ Quiz me on his spelling words and express doubt that I really know how to spell them.

~ Wonder why the recess aide objected to his attempt to start a recess poker ring. (Okay, okay, he says he only wanted to play Solitaire.)

~ Pose for a picture.
At least he knows how to look studious.

Then he excused himself to regale Roscoe with several verses of this song: "If you're climbing up a ladder and you feel something splatter...DIARRHEA."

  3. Okay, maybe he's right. He argued with me over the vocabulary portion of the homework, not the spelling.

    Also, I freely admit that I take artistic liberties with "fact" (*scoff*) and that this blog frequently veers from biography to memoir.

  12. About Bilbo. It was a momentary emotion, a lingering trace of his long contact with an evil influence, quickly overcome, strongly regretted, never repeated. It was a singular example of the very strong humanity of JRR's work.

    On the other hand, the point was the 30 second attention span. Delving into the details of spelling vs. vocabulary is an interesting aside, a mere punctuation, a way to avoid the issue by poking at something of no significance. The Arab word for it is ghafla, a negotiating technique to deflect from the important by objecting to trivia.

    (Welcome to blogging, boys!)
