Default Conversation with my 15 year old

Just had a conversation with our 15 year old. He was arguing that grammar and punctuation aren't all they're cracked up to be.

My response that left him thinking was
Kenneth, proper grammar and punctuation is the difference between

Feeling you're nuts
And
Feeling your nuts


He had no response and left the room

If he doesn't think grammar and punctuation are not important, let him read a webstertroy thread.

From 14-25 they know it all and we are just "foolish old men". Then life jumps up and grabs them by the throat. Miraculously we become "wise old men".

Well done.

Tagged for future information, maybe I can come up with some "class room appropriate" one liners, cause I know my students need it some times.
