The little bunny was jumping around my living room as I tried to concentrate on my first lesson.
"What's a noun Gram?" I asked not taking my eyes off my book. He kept jumping but started humming a song.
"Nouns are this…" he pointed to all my mom's decorative things on the table. "Nouns is that…" he was singing, pointing every where, even at him and finally he stop and pointed a finger at me, "And even this…. You have many nouns in youuuuu" he sang in a high falsetto. "Nouns are everywhereeee Tan taaan!" he finish the song sliding on the floor whit his arms wide open.
"Thanks for the help" I said with sarcasm turning back to my book. The humming came back again making me sigh as I lay back on my chair.
"My mom is noun, your mom is a noun….. My dad is a rabbiiiiit… which is a noun too. Your dad is sooo stupid which is a nouuuuun…."
"Hey!! No insulting!" I said as giggle making my words have no effect.
"'Captain Crunch' is a noun with capital lettersss. 'The captain is dumb' is a noun without capitaaaaal" he kept signing and jumping around the room. "Hey Mom bring me some carrotsss'…..mom i-i-isss a a a a nouuuun with capital letters my friend. And there the 'friend' is with- ouuut" he went to a stop and stared at me for a moment. "You got it?"
"yeah yeah…." Is said closing the book on my laps. "a noun is a word that names a person, places, things and… quality?" I said doubtful and Gram nodded jumping around. "A title and rank is capitalized when directly referring to the person, not just when talking about it like "The professor is a bitch" is not capitalized and "The Professor Morgan is a bitch" is capitalized" I said and Gram giggled jumping to the edge of the window.
"Keep studying I nee to eat Carrots" he giggled yet again. "That's capital letters Carrots because I think 'carrot' is a word that should be written in capital letters all the time"
"Yeah yeah… Whatever you say" I reopened my book while he left humming the song.
"Nouns are…hummm hum hummm" I couldn't get the song out of my head for the rest of the day.
