One-Liner Wednesday — Oh, The Ickiness of Average

I said to Sassy, “Had I censored your reading, you would not be the student you are now.”

“I know, right? I’d be…” she shuddered, “Average.”

    That’s as awful as being — wait for it — standard. Go, Sassy.

    Joey, I was never censored and I am sad when I meet adults who were told what to read and what was not allowed. Book banning is bad but book burning is just “evil.” I love your Sassy’s shuddering. My oldest daughter does this when people mention censoring art. She won the Ohio Governor’s award for her chalk and blsck, white and gray pastel huge drawing of three nudes while in high school. Her art teacher sent home a “bill” for this amazing matte and frame she helped to enter her in the state contest. Your Sassy would read while Carrie would draw, photograph or paint her. πŸ™‚

      I just don’t think it’s helpful. On this particular day, Moo had checked out a book for Sassy, from her elementary school. She said to Sassy, “I hadda have Mama sign a card so I could check it out.”
      Then Sassy mentioned that one of her friends hadn’t been able to read The Hunger Games because her mother refused to sign the card. I know this child to be an excellent student, and I can’t imagine what her mother will do now that (in middle school) no parent approval is required for any text? Crazy. And that’s when I made the comment.
