After Todd arrived home from Youth this evening, he told me he had presented his pollution project in his literacy class today. The following conversation ensued.
Me: "How did it go?"
Todd: "I think I done great!"
Me: "Todd, you need to phrase that properly."
Todd: " I think I done fantastic?"
Me: "Agh! No. Rephrase that sentence."
Todd: "I done great?"
Kyle whispered in Todd's ear.
Todd: "I done good?"
Me: "Double agh! Now there are two things wrong in your sentence!"
Todd: "Oh! I done VERY good!"
Sometimes his vocabulary impresses me. Occasionally, it doesn't.
I congratulated him on a job well done.
Then I sat him and Kyle down for a discussion about past and perfect form verbs, with a quick review of adverbs.
I think I done pretty good.
