If the Apples Fall Any Closer to the Tree

General, have you read at least one chapter of Animal Farm?

“I’ve read four chapters. I like the book.”

Good. What is it about? What have you learned so far?

“Well, it’s about some animals…on a farm…”

Someone, please, just shoot me.

Major Havoc, have you completed your math?

“I’m having some problems with a couple of problems.”

That's appropriate. (reading from his math paper) Draw a shape that has four angles. How many  sides does it have? Major, you know which shape has four angles.

“Oh, yeah,” he replied, a silly grin crossing his face. “A square. I thought it said ‘angels’.”

Honestly, if the apples fall any closer to the tree I'm going to have a lump on my head.

Ahhhh. Thanks, I needed that. Ha ha ha, ha ha. You gotta love it!

If we're talking angels, I'll take an octagon please.
