DD proudly announced to me that she found a way to use "intoxicated primate" in her SAT essay yesterday.


Upon seeing my horrified expression, she quickly reassured me; "No, really, mom... it was COMPLETELY appropriate in the context of my essay. Really."

I was still skeptical, though, and she then elaborated; "I thought it was far more erudite than 'drunken baboon.'"

Ohhhh, well, sure, when you put it that way... eek

{While I can't talk about her essay topic yet, when she explained FURTHER, I had to admit that the colorful metaphor was, in fact, probably a point-grabbing way of phrasing things.}

Schrödinger's cat walks into a bar. And doesn't.
