A Reading Lesson

Recently, Liam (5) proudly handed me a piece of paper with his own writing. I really wanted to be thrilled with his current work of art, but I could not decipher the scrambled writing.

This is what it said:
YRTNUOCEMAGGIB

Hmmm....

Are you also puzzled?

Humor me and tell me that you are.

Thank you.

I finally admitted defeat and asked him to explain it to me.

"It's my shirt!"
Aha! BIG GAME COUNTRY

How silly of me to not think of reading his writing backwards. You see, if you are reading the shirt that is on your own trunk, then you might be tempted to read it backwards.

I often say that I learn something new every day. Today's lesson: Never forget to read backwards.

That's "Have a good day" for those of you as slow as I.

HA! When Dude first started writing, he wrote everything like that . . . you could read all of his writing in a mirror. It was pretty cool ;-)
