~~ Friday’s Hunt v.3.21 -- "U" is for ...
(3) Kids: At least once a week we have been privileged to walk our KP to school. Sometimes, mostly with cold or bad weather we drive her. She likes to walk with the neighbor kids. She was walking with a close friend and her mother on this day. The neighbor's little brother was dilly-dallying along behind or I would have had him in the picture also.
(1) Starts with "U": "Unglued" is a seven letter word starting with "Un". There are 355 of these seven letter starters, this is one that only gets you nine points in Scrabble.
Most "Un" words and many of the plain "U" words have an opposite by dropping the prefix. A few like "Upload" (I'm uploading this when I finish--actually also every time I "save" during composition) will have for opposite another prefixed word like here, "Download".
(2) Week's Favorite: We had a nasty storm with several smallish tornados around our area this week. After one hard day of hail and winds we had this lovely Rainbow make and appearance over the homes behind us.
And Dagwood is dreaming about food. Do you think that Dagwood is on Facebook? I didn't try to find out but I am thinking his syndication is.

Did you know that Unfriend is not a word for Second Graders. KP missed getting her deserved grade when she used Unfriend in a sentence. Her teacher counted that answer as bad, not credit. Seems she doesn't subscribe to Google:
Do you think "Unfriend" is a real English vocabulary word?
Best answer: We asked "Oxford". (click here to find out)

The Fine Print: - Teresa of Eden Hills, (click) is running this meme, Friday's Hunt. Her rules are: "Welcome to linkup for Friday’s Hunt. It’s very simple. Anyone can participate. The link opens at 7pm Friday Central time and will close Sunday at 7pm."
Loved the lesson on words and KP should have been given credit for unfriend. It's a word that is used often.
Have a fabulous day. ☺
I would be irritated with that teacher. Just because we didn't grow up with a particular word doesn't make it any less a viable word. While some words maybe shouldn't be words (because they shouldn't be in anyone's vocabulary!), I think this one is a current, modern word in common usage. I think that she should have gotten the points for her sentence.
The comics that you shared are great, especially the Beetle Bailey one.
My Friday Hunt post is here.
Have a blessed day!
