In an attempt to make learning vocabulary a bit more fun I've been trying to give ds half a dozen words/phrases to define or lookup if he didn't know them which are in some way applicable to things that have happened that day. So today we've had:
procrastination (he wasn't overkeen on practice) and histrionics (when told at least a small amount practice was going to happen anyway)
provocation and retaliation (when world war 3 broke out with his younger brother)
scaremonger and merchant of doom (about the person who told him 95%+ was needed and his subsequent announcement that he was bound to fail).

Anyone else care to describe their day/weekend in similar terms?
