Transcript: Lady Vocab - Measurement
An animated blue slate shows the title "The Lady Vocab Show."
Professor P stands inside a dark space, next to a screen with the title of the show. He's in his twenties, with short curly black hair and a mustache. He's wearing glasses, a black sweater, white shirt and black tie.
He says WELCOME TO THE LADY VOCAB SHOW. I'M YOUR HOST, PROFESSOR P, AND JOINING ME NOW IS OUR STAR OF THE SHOW. MAKE SOME NOISE FOR LADY VOCAB!
Lady Vocab wears a blond bob wig with an updo, flashy sparkling sunglasses and a black and white latex dress with the words "famous, sticker, graphic, fuzzy" on it and black gloves.
She says WOOF, WOOF, WOOF! THANKS, PROFESSOR P. ARE YOU READY TO WOW THE CROWD WITH WORDS?
Professor P says OH, YES, MY LADY. AND TODAY'S WORD IS... MEASUREMENT. A NOUN WHICH IS A NUMBER THAT TELLS US THE SIZE, LENGTH OR AMOUNT OF SOMETHING.
Lady Vocab says OH, LIKE THE TEMPERATURE OUTSIDE OR THE WEIGHT OF A SCHOOL BAG?
Professor P says PRECISELY. DIFFERENT TOOLS ARE USED FOR DIFFERENT MEASUREMENTS.
Lady Vocab says LIKE THERMOMETERS FOR TEMPERATURE AND RULERS FOR DISTANCE AND HEIGHT.
Professor P says EXACTLY, MY LADY. AND, YOU KNOW, THAT REMINDS ME ACTUALLY OF WHEN I WAS JUST A YOUNG LAD GROWING TALL, DREAMING OF BECOMING A TEACHER... EVERY MORNING BEFORE SCHOOL I USED TO MEASURE MY HEIGHT AND THEN WRITE IT DOWN IN MY NOTEBOOK.
Lady Vocab says HOW MUCH DID YOU GROW?
Professor P says I DIDN'T NOTICE MUCH CHANGE DAY BY DAY, BUT OVER A FEW MONTHS I NOTICED A DIFFERENCE. ALTHOUGH, WHEN I TOLD MY FRIENDS AT SCHOOL THEY COULDN'T BELIEVE ME.
Lady Vocab says WHY YOU MEASURED IT YOURSELF.
Professor P says RIGHT, I EVEN HAD PROOF. BUT THERE WAS ONE THING I OVERLOOKED.
Lady Vocab says WHAT?
Professor P says I USED THE WRONG UNIT FOR MY MEASUREMENTS. INSTEAD OF SAYING I'D GROWN 4 CENTIMETRES, I TOLD EVERYONE I GREW 4 METRES.
Lady Vocab says HA, HA! OH, WOW! WELL, SINCE 1 METRE IS 100 CENTIMETRES, THAT MEANS YOU WOULD HAVE GROWN 400 CENTIMETRES!
Professor P says WHY, I'D BE AS TALL AS A SMALL BUILDING. IT'S NO WONDER I SHOCKED THEM.
Lady Vocab says WELL, IT SEEMS LIKE YOU LEARNED A VALUABLE LESSON IN MEASUREMENTS AND UNITS. ALL'S WELL THAT ENDS WELL. HIT IT!
(Upbeat pop music plays)
Lady Vocab sings M-E-A-S-U-R-E-M-E-N-T YOU CAN MEASURE THE SIZE, THE LENGTH OR AMOUNT YOU CAN MEASURE DISTANCES
Professor P says JUST TAKE A RULER AND COUNT.
Lady Vocab says MEASUREMENTS.
Professor P says HOW TALL IS THAT TREE?
Lady Vocab says JUST MEASURE IT
Professor P says WELL, HOW MUCH IS A FEET?
Lady Vocab says THAT'S A MEASUREMENT
Professor P says OH, AND DON'T FORGET ABOUT THE UNITS.
Lady Vocab says JUST MEASURE IT IT'LL ONLY TAKE YOU A MINUTE.
Lady Vocab says M-M-MEASUREMENTS
Professor P says WELL, SPEAKING OF TIME, WE'VE RUN OUT OF IT, SO JOIN US NEXT TIME ON THE LADY VOCAB SHOW FOR A BRAND NEW LESSON. IT'LL BE THIS MUCH FUN.
