The English Language...??!! =p

Ok, so this is uuuuuhhhhhh, just read it youll see what i mean??!!....

How did we ever learn the English language??!!!
Brush Up on Your Speech
I take it you already know
Of tough and bough and cough and dough?
Others may stumble, but not you,
On hiccough, thorough, laugh, and through!
Well done! And now you wish, perhaps,
To learn of less familiar traps.
Beware of heard, a dreadful word
That looks like beard and sounds like bird
And dead: it's said like bed, not bead -
For goodness' sake don't call it "deed"!
Watch out for meat and great and threat
(They rhyme with suite and straight and debt).
A moth is not a moth in mother
Nor both in bother, broth in brother.
And here is not a match for there,
Nor dear and fear for bear and pear.
And then it's dose and rose and lose -
Just look them up - and loose and choose.
And cork and work and card and ward,
And font and front and word and sword,
And do and go and thwart and cart -
Come, come I've hardly made a start!
A dreadful language? Man alive,
I'd mastered it when I was five!

You know you're homeschooleed if....

Here is something you all might enjoy!!'s hillarious!!

You know you're homeschooled if...

You heard the phrase “socialization” and laughed becauseyou had more friends and knew more people than your public school friends.

You went to school in your PJs.

Your stacks of books to check out was taller than the librarian.

You considered school work after lunch to be cruel and unusual punishment.

You had to move laundry off your desk before you could start school.

A snow day meant that you had to shovel the driveway after you finished your school work.

You had to look at the clock to see if you could call your public school friends yet.

You thought that “public-school-kid” was an insult of the highest degree.

You were always late but just called it “homeschooler time.”

The teacher could kiss the principal, and no one thought it was unusual.

You got to school and the teacher asked you if you’ve done all your chores.

Your friends talked about waiting in line for seven hours totry out the new roller coaster in town, so you went and waited five minutes on a school day.

Gym class was actually a fun activity like dancing.

The closest thing to a bully in your school was your slightly strange five-year-old brother.

Your friends complained about a hard day at school, and you had to keep yourself from giving them “that homeschooling smile.”

You slept in till 9 am on weekdays but got up at 7 am on Sundays.

You have suffered through Saxon Math.

You have finished your schoolwork before breakfast.

You spent more than 2 hours each day reading and writing...voluntarily.

You had more than 2 science experiments going on in your room.

You have spent the entire school day in pajamas.

You checked out more than 10 books each time you visited the library.

You actually wanted to receive books on your birthday.

Your bedroom was your classroom and your bed or floor was the desk.

You stayed up till whenever, and not because you were doing homework.

You could get days ahead in almost any subject.

You forgot about the minor holidays until you saw your dad sitting home in sweats or your public school friends asked you over the weekend what you did on your day off.

Your mom counted watching a war movie as history and playing out in the snow as PE.

You had more friends way older and way younger than you than ones your actual age.

You read for fun.
