My husband mentioned this morning that the moon was waxing. I have never been able to remember the difference between waxing and waning... but Ashley said her teacher said, "Wax on, Wane off."
After I stopped giggling, I remembered my history teacher, Mr. Brooks, telling us that sometimes mnemonics don't always work as well as they should. He had a student who wrote on a test, "In fourteen hundred and ninety three, Columbus sailed the deep blue sea" instead of the correct "In fourteen hundred and ninety two, Columbus sailed the ocean blue." Thanks, Jen!!!
