One of my favorite stories is from Crop 161 with Dr. Carlson.  One day in class he was teaching us about cotyledons and what they do for grass.  He was telling us a story about Johnny and his mom. The story was about how Johnny had to mow the lawn because it kept on growing.  Dr. Carlson had a one sided conversation with himself imitating Johnny with a low voice, and imitating his mom with a high voice. His conversation included how Johnny’s mom wanted him to mow the grass because it kept on growing.  I will never forget that day in class or the reason why grass grows is because of the cotyledon part of the plant.
