    I remember making similar erroneous extrapolations from my limited knowledge, at about that same age.

    I thought they were invented in Venice.

    I notice the teacher’s smile changes when she calls on Ruthie. Is that a tense grimace of anticipation?

    Librarian knows Ruthie is predicable.

    Sorry my understanding is not as great as yours. I understand erroneous, not extrapolations.

    I wonder what answer the library lady had in mind. I can’t tell you what made Phoenicians stand out.

    First one squiggle equals one phoneme alphabet. Ancestor of ours.

    Phoenica: trade, great sailors, Phoenician alphabet, …, hard to choose one thing, so I agree.

    Susan: the reason for the library lady’s fake grimace is that she feels uneasy because of what Ruthie might say; she already knows that the girl is quite a character.
     
    And I’m sorry to say this, but your violent reaction is rather disturbing.

    Ironically, Venetian blinds are not from Venice at all. They originated in Persia (now Iran), but were shipped through Venice to the “western world”. In France and Italy, they’re known as Persian Blinds, it is only the ignorant English speaking countries that refer to them as Venetian blinds.

    I don’t know. But that’s what girls look like when they see me for the first time.
