Homework Help

This afternoon my younger son asked me about transitional sentences. I offered what I thought was a cogent explanation. He said, "I thought you were supposed to be good at writing."

Then I looked over his geometry homework. The book explained that mathematicians do not draw using perspective. What? All these years of drawing cones, cubes and prisms and I never realized I wasn't using perspective! Well, my shapes are drawn in perspective, if the vanishing point is infinity.

Conversation snippet:
Me: Don't you think infinity is blue?
Husband: Only during the day.
