Nevertheless, my mind ended up wandering again, and I was thinking about Muppet Christmas Carol and the Flash. I had a vague sense that the teacher had asked the RS what they think you have to do to develop a Christ-like character. I snapped to attention when the teacher asked, "And what kind of a word is repentance?" And my first thought is, "A noun...?" which actually did turn out to be the direction she was heading, because the answer was an action word. Now, in my defense, I work with language all the time as a translator, so, while it's not necessarily a good thing, it makes sense that I would be a grammar Nazi. I pointed out right away that, actually, repentance is a noun--repent is a verb.
I immediately realized that I was being a dork, so I apologized, but the teacher was very nice, and even thanked me, and even sounded sincere about it. And then I felt like I should participate more, or at least pay more attention, to make up for detracting from the lesson with my evil nitpicking ways. But instead, I ended up composing this LJ entry in my head. But fortunately, I realized what I was doing and snapped out of it and was able to pay more attention, though I did keep playing Bless Us All from Muppet Christmas Carol in my head as background music.
