Day 6: #SOL16- Sentences With Double Meanings
The Slice of Life Challenge is hosted by the inspirational writers of Two Writing Teachers. Each March, they invite people to join them in a commitment to write every day. Here's to another year of daily slicing!
I'm still celebrating National Grammar Day which was on March 4th--the only calendar day of the year that is also a command. I posted a slice about it yesterday.
With grammar on my mind, I had a long drive with my daughter Julia, who is a high school senior. She was a captive audience for me, as I was trying to think of sentences that could have double meanings along the lines of March 4th/ march forth. Julia knows the classic missing comma example: Let's eat, Grandma/ Let's eat Grandma, so she caught on quickly.
We came up with:
Will he read the whole book?/ Will, he read the whole book!
Mom is their dinner./ Mom, is there dinner?
Where are pants from my brother?/ Wear our pants from my brother!
If anyone could come up with more, please include double meaning sentences in the comments. I'm looking to build a collection!
