Battle: A Conversation With Luke

While reviewing his homework tonight....

Me: Luke, you *know* your homework has to be answered in complete sentences.
Luke: It is.
Me: "The battle at Trenton." is not a complete sentence.
Luke: Yes it is!
Me: What is the subject?
Luke: Battle.
Me: What is the verb?
Luke (hesitantly): At?
Me: At is not a verb.
Luke: Battle.
Me: Battle is not the verb.
Luke: It is too a verb!!
Me (sighing): Battle can be either a noun or a verb. A single use of the word battle cannot be both the subject and the verb at the same time!

Currently feeling: both frustrated and amused
