"The word is jingoism, Mrs. Suzuki, pronounced jin-go-ism."
"Say it again, Harris, along with its definition. I'm so embarrassed up here and I need a minute to recover."
Harris says the word again, propping me up from my dictionary of shame. "Jingoism. It means extreme patriotism." (This is a beginner's definition, but his definition was better than what I had. If you're really curious about the word, read here.)
Maybe I should purchase Catherine Maladrino's American flag dress dress. Then on Monday, during 2nd hour, I will sing the National Anthem while wearing that dress.
