:rolleyes: Oh My God.
Skippy, put down the controller. Go over and look in Mommy's room for a wooden shelf called a "bookshelf". All of those things on the shelf are called "books". Look carefully for a biiiiiiiig book with a biiiiiiiiiiig word that starts with a "D". That will be a "dictionary". Take that book off the shelf and open it.
Here's where it gets tricky, son, so pay attention. When you open the book, you will see lots and lots of words. You'll notice that those words are grouped together, those that start with "A" are in the front of the book. Keep checking all of the words until you find "apparatus". Then, read that section carefully until it talks about the "plural" (more than one) of the word. You will see that the common accepted plural is "apparatus". "Apparatuses" is an ancient form of the word that is no longer commonly used or accepted in today's English-especially in the fire service.
Now you can go back to your game.
