Top Grossing Movies are Romantic Flicks

So last night we were watching Who Wants to Be a Millionaie. T-man got to stay up to watch it with us since it is still summer. One of the questions was about the top grossing movie a few weeks ago. Then, of course, there were four choices. I don't remember what they all were but one was Star Trek. T says, "It's got to be Star Trek. There wouldn't have been any romance in that."

"What do you mean?" I asked him. Then it dawned on me! He thought grossing meant romance movies because he thinks romance is gross!

So I asked him, "What do you think grossing means?"

Sure enough that was what he was thinking! Silly boy! Although he was trying to use the context skills and his prior knowledge the best he could to figure out a word he didn't know.
