In my previous post, I began a who-knows-how-long series on homeschooling. I consider myself to be an authority on the subject, considering that I am, after all, homeschooled. This post, I think, is about the ‘funny stuff’: all the humour related to the fascinating and mysterious world of homeschoolers.
So: questions. In no particular order, here are some of the questions we get asked on a semi-regular basis:
1. No school today, young lady?
I actually get asked this question more often as I get older. Am I looking younger or something?
Yes. Homeschooling. I stay home, I take college-level classes, read all print material which comes through my house, and consider the Encyclopedia Britannica to be my go-to resource. What do you do?
3. Do you have homework?
It’s all homework, buddy.
4. How do you talk to people?
Seriously. You’re asking me how I talk to people?
6. Are you, like, Amish?
No. Next question, please.
7. So…what exactly do you do?
While it isn’t complete, I think the following picture describes it pretty well:
I feel the need to point out that I actually do real schoolwork. Blogging is more of a hobby–and distraction. But what are hobbies for, but to distract us from necessary chores?
If I missed any questions, please send me your favourites. This next part is a compilation of some of the best and weirdest homeschooling memes, jokes, and pictures. Think of it as my Collins Collage, just the homeschooled edition.
