Little Johnny in the 3rd grade

It seems the third grade teacher was getting her class to think in terms of sentences and not just words. After explaining to them exactly what a sentence was, she asked them to give her an example of a sentence.
Billy raised his hand and she called on him. "What is your sentence, Billy?"
Billy said, "My dad has a Farmall tractor."
"Very good, Billy. How about you, Sally".
Sally said, "My favorite pet is my cat."
"Now you're getting the idea," said the teacher.
There sits little Johnny with his hand in the air.
"Okay, Johnny, let's hear your sentence," said the teacher.
Johnny says, "Urinate."
The teacher says, "No, Johnny, that is just a word, not a sentence."
Johnny insisted that it was too a sentence.
"Well, then, Johnny, why don't you explain to me how 'urinate' is a sentence."
Johnny said "Urinate. If you'd get some implants, you'd be a 10."

Got 2 great grans, 5 and 8. The other day, the 8 year old said he was getting tired of the way he was being treated. Asked him how he was treated and he said, "Well, I am treated like I am DEATH"!! That got my attention, real quick, and I asked him who treated him like death, and he said his little brother did. Still confused, I asked how you would treat someone like death, and he looked at me like I was 2 bricks shy and said, "YOU know! He YELLS at me like I can't HEAR! You know, like I am DEATH"!

I scooted inside so he wouldn't see me laugh, for I can relate to that, as I am getting DEATH as a post!
