The Odor of Classification

Last night, I was helping my daughter study for her science test.  One of the things she had to know, was the biological order of classification.  I looked at her study guide, and asked her to list them.

"Domain, Kingdom, Phylum, Class, Odor . . ."

I stopped her right there.  "Wait a minute.  You have a misspelling here.  It should be 'Order' not 'Odor.'"

She laughed. "No, Mom.  I'm pretty sure it's 'Odor.'  It's the classification for all the boys who have stinky feet and armpits!"

    1. Maybe. Not sure if they all fall under that category, though. ;0)

    1. You never had to learn that in school? Let me enlighten you: Domain, Kingdom, Phylum, Class, Order, Family, Genus, Species. (It's the order for an organism's scientific names.)

    2. Wonderful.

      Tomorrow it's banana cream pie with homemade every single thing. I'm writing a dairy-free formula. Should be fun.

      Happy Weekend.

  7. I'll bet she'll never forget the biological order of classification--or at least the "order" part of it!

    1. Yes. I think they should have free deodorant in middle school for all the stinky boys who don't bother putting it on at home.

  12. They're right, you know. The stinky feet people should be separated from the rest of humanity.
