Jet is Too Cool

On Jet's 'final' reading comprehension exam... he only missed one question.

And the question was a fine example of how academic questions make me want to pull my hair out.

On a cloudy, cold and windy day which would you want to wear?

A. A warm hat.
B. A swimsuit.
C. Shorts.
D. Sunglasses.


Of course, Jet picked C.

I mean... note the 'which would YOU want to wear'... and the fact that he and John wear shorts every day until it's below 0 (-15 C) out. And when we asked him a little about his reasoning, he said that just wearing a hat would be way too cold, and shorts cover more than a *hat* and are thicker than a swim suit.

John and I laughed far too hard at the answer; and we definitely made it known that if he was going to answer a question this way it was all right if the teacher marked it 'wrong', when WE all knew it was True.
