The teacher asked the class to use the word ‘fascinate’ in a sentence.
Molly put up her hand and said, “My family went to my granddad’s farm and we all saw his pet sheep. It was fascinating.”
The teacher said, “That was good, but I wanted you to use the word ‘fascinate,’ not fascinating.”
Sally raised her hand. She said, “My family went to see Rock City and I was fascinated.”
The teacher said, “Well, that was good Sally, but I wanted you to use the word ‘fascinate.’”
Little Johnny raised his hand. The teacher hesitated because Little Johnny had burned her before. She finally decided there was no way he could damage the word ‘fascinate,’ so she called on him for his offering.
Johnny said, “My aunt Rachel has a sweater with ten buttons, but her boobs are so big she can only fasten eight.”
