Today I had a vocabulary test at school. One of the words on the test was recluse, and I had to use it in a sentence. I wrote the following: Osama was believed to live in recluse. The teacher put a -1 mark next to the sentence. Usually the teacher will write next to the sentence why it was wrong, but she just wrote -1. Why would she take points off? I didn't have time to bring it up with her today. I also had been drawing in the margins and such on the test, since I finished early, so I was thinking she may have been mad about that and took it out on Osama. My other thought was that she didn't know what Osama was. I really want this one right, since I got an 89%, and with that 1 point, I would have gotten a 92%, which looks a lot better.
