We were looking over our daughter’s homework with her this afternoon. It’s an exercise where they review the previous week’s work, see what they did well and they did less well, and then evaluate themselves. One of her assignments was to write a paragraph. Our daughter wrote four. When we pointed this out to her, she protested that the first paragraph didn’t count:

> That’s not a paragraph! That’s a prologue.

We paused, and then we burst out laughing.
