h/t Terry from FLMolly put up her hand and said, “My family went to my granddad's farm,and we all saw his pet sheep. It was fascinating."The teacher said, “That was good, but I wanted you to use the word‘fascinate,’ not 'fascinating'.”Sally raised her hand. She said, “My family went to see Rock City andI was fascinated.”The teacher said, “Well, that was good Sally, but I wanted you to usethe word ‘fascinate’.”Little Johnny raised his hand, but the teacher hesitated because shehad been burned by Little Johnny before. She finally decided there wasno way he could damage the word “fascinate,” so she called on him.Johnny said, “My aunt Leslie has a sweater with ten buttons, but hertits are so big she can only fasten eight!”The teacher sat down and cried.
