Day 25: Lobject's storybook
Amelia’s mindset has stayed with me. When my mom asked me to cut the grass, I opened the drawer with the scissors. When my teacher asked me to write my math problem on the board, I stood with the chalk in my hand contemplating how much trouble I’d get in if I wrote my math problem on the board. When a friend wants to catch a ride, I consider slowing down as I drive by the house but not stopping. It’s silly, I know, but I feel as strongly now as I did at age six about specific word choice. Wouldn’t the world be simpler if everyone said exactly what they meant?
