One day my mother was out and my dad was in charge of me and my older brother. I was maybe 1-? years old and had just recovered from an accident in which my arm had been broken among other injuries.
Someone had given me a little tea set as a get-well gift and it was one of my new favorite toys. Daddy was in the living room engrossed in the evening news and my brother was playing nearby when I brought Daddy a little cup of 'tea' which was just water.
After several cups of tea and lots of praise for such yummy tea, my mom came home. Dad had her wait in the living room to watch me bring him a cup of tea, because it was 'just the cutest thing!'
My mom waited and sure enough, here I come down the hall with a cup of tea for daddy and she watches him drink it up and then says, "Did it ever occur to you that the only place that baby can reach to get water is the toilet?"
Esta lista veicula diariamente uma história, preferencialmente engraçada (afinal, quem não gosta de uma boa piada?), ou uma citação. As histórias estão em inglês, e as palavras mais incomuns são comentadas. Dessa forma os alunos aprendem, todos os dias, duas ou mais palavras novas. Todos os dias. Em um ano esse pequeno esforço diário pode vir a fazer uma grande diferença.
