"How do you spell, "ovum?"
"Ovum? What do you mean, L? Can you use it in a sentence for me?"
"Sure. Like, '...there were a hundred ovum...'"
"Ah, L. You mean 'of them' then. Two words."
"Two words? Really? For 'ovum'?! Huh!"
I shouldn't be so surprised. This comes from my same second grade class that believes fairy tales start with "Wunsa pona time...."
Maybe by the end of the year I can get all ovum to spell better so we can live Happily Ever After.
