Battle: A Conversation With Luke

The Battle Over Battle….

  • Me: Luke, you know your homework has to be answered in complete sentences.
  • Luke: It is.
  • Me: “The battle at Trenton.” is not a complete sentence.
  • Luke: Yes it is!
  • Me: What is the subject?
  • Luke: Battle.
  • Me: What is the verb?
  • Luke (hesitantly): At?
  • Me: At is not a verb.
  • Luke: Battle.
  • Me: Battle is not the verb.
  • Luke: It is too a verb!!
  • Me (sighing): Battle can be either a noun or a verb. A single use of the word battle cannot be both the subject and the verb at the same time! ::headdesk::
