Back in Fifth Grade, the Math teacher taught us basic geometry. She handed out a test with shapes on it. “Name each shape,” she said. When I saw a square, I called it a square. When I saw a hexagon, I called it a hexagon. And so on. When I got my test back, I saw a big red F on it. “All of the names” the teacher wrote in red. The square was also a polygon, a quadrilateral, a rectangle, and a rhombus. I called her all the names I thought she was, and landed in the principal’s office.
