Why Not?

On Wednesday, we took our usually daily quiz and then went straight into the test. Since we only got a brief glimpse at Monday's reading, we're going to cover it in detail tomorrow. We didn't get to assign readings, so I guess it's first come, first served for posting questions. See everyone tomorrow! :)
