When my brother was home a few weeks ago, we were talking about how the Georgia State Superintendent was the first winner of "Are you smarter than a Fifth Grader?". During the course of that conversation, I reminded my brother that while I knew a good number, I didn't know all the state capitals anymore. As sad/weird/funny as it sounds, the rest of the ride home, my brother used his iPhone as I relearned all the state capitals. We had the best time laughing (and drilling each other) to the "home bases" of the fifty states. Thanks to that experience, I will never look at Richmond, Virginia the same EVAH again. (I'll be happy to share that story privately.)
This morning on The Pioneer Woman, Ree A.K.A. P-Dub is giving away some gift certificate for learning tools and asked the question:
"If you could relearn some subject from school (without shame of course), what would it be?"
My response was: ESPANOL.
I took two years of high school spanish and semester in college. If I were taken hostage in a spanish speaking country I could:
1. Count to 100
2. Ask where the bathroom is.
3. Ask where the library is.
4. Sing my white-girl karaoke version of La Cucaracha and Cielito.
5. Identify crazy chickens.
So... what would you relearn?
