Teacher's Apple

Hi Kids!

Today, I have a problem for you to take on or ignore. Write a sentence that ends with the following, including its beautiful concluding punctuation:


...I eat what I see”!’ ” 


And, yes, I have been looking at the Chicago Manual of Style. Thank you for asking. 

What's Peanut eating? A wad of paper that I worried would choke him. That troublesome rascal.

  1. Bunny leaned over her diary and wrote: "And then Mom was staring at the shards of porcelain on the table and Uncle Fedora kept laughing and said, 'Professor Lusty tried to justify daytime cannibalism as a seafood diet and told us all, "Unless I'm blind, I just see other people and I eat what I see"!' "

  2. So I quoted Alice in Wonderland and said, "'Not the same thing a bit!' said the Hatter. 'You might just as well say that "I see what I eat" is the same thing as "I eat what I see"!'"

    I'm happy to see you back on the interwebs! I've missed you, Dr Malasarn.

  3. You're both so clever. I have to give the award to Jabez, though, because of the cannibalism. Reference to Tolstoy would have also earned bonus points.

  4. Mighty Reader has Chicago on the shelf. Every once in a while I give its spine a good hard stare while I walk through the room.

  5. I hadn't looked at the book for a long time, but I stumbled upon the online version a couple of days ago and had fun looking up various things. The Internet is really calling for new rules!
