Stone Soup by Jan Eliot for January 04, 2009
Alix: Mom?!! Do I have to do my homework? Val: Of course? Alix: Why? Val: So you can be prepared for adulthood. Alix: How does doing homework do that??? Val: Don't you want to go to college? Get a good job? Provide for your family?? Be a responsible voter? Know how to take care of the environment?! Alix: OK, OK!!! Sigh... Assignment: Make a topographic map of Canada using rice, beans and macaroni.
