Oh Frabjous Day!

Calloo! Callay! I finally got this poem!

Have you ever thought you knew something, but what you really knew was about the something? All these years, I've known all about "Jabberwocky", and the nonsense words, and all that. But (I'm a little embarrassed to admit) I don't think I've ever really read it or had any idea that it might have a story to it at all. Until yesterday, with Kelly Fineman's post about teaching poetry to kids, and this YouTube clip.

And to think that galumphing is one of my favorite words. Sometimes all it takes is a little Muppet show.

Oh frabjous day! Calloo! Callay! Lifelong learning rocks!
