Prepositions [Nov. 30th, 2005|10:02 pm]
Making a lesson plan would go oh so much better if my brain wasn't totally fried. Fried fried fried. Actually understanding what a preposition is would probably help too.

You can remember what prepositions are in a couple of ways. One is to view something definitive like the Wikipedia entry on prepositions.

The other is to remember the following joke:

An inner-city girl visits a snooty upper-class women's college (let's use Barnard this time) as a prospective candidate. After touring around for a bit she finds herself in need of a bio break and stops a random upperclasswoman.

"Scuse me," she asks, "Where's the nearest bathroom at?"

The upperclasswoman looks down her nose at the high schooler and says haughtily "At Barnard, we do not end our sentences with prepositions!"

To which the high school girl replies: "Oh, excuse me. Where's the bathroom at, bitch?"
