Everything I Needed to Know
I'm facing an "exam" tomorrow, but it's a done deal, foregone.
I tried to explain this to my six-year-old. She said, "Don't worry, Dad. If you get a bad grade, we'll still love you."
"No," I said. "I've already passed -- it's kind of weird, I know, but no grades, bad or otherwise."
"Okay," she said. "But don't worry, we'll still love you if you get a bad grade."
Public school, I'm convinced, makes us all unreasonable.
