Dr. Jerz tossed this fine fellow at me during class today to illustrate the difference between active and passive voice. I’m pretty sure he’s a hexapus although I originally wrote hectapus. “Dr. Jerz threw the hexapus at Katy” versus “The hexapus was thrown at Katy.” I shouldn’t EVER forget active and passive voice again although I’m sure I will eventually.
Good thing his throw was a little short because I would not have caught the poor thing! Anyways, the hexapus made a great desk buddy during the lecture, and I wanted to share his adorableness with the rest of my class. –Katelyn Snyder
