Levi- Hey mom.
L- You know that huge math project that was due in December?
L- I was wrong.
Me- About what?
L- It isn't due in December.
Me- When IS it due?
L- It is due on Friday.
Me- The whole thing?
Me- Can you get it done in one day? You have a wrestling match tomorrow night.
L- I started fiddling with it on class and got it all done except for eight days.
Me- I don't know what you are talking about... days?
L- I have to draw a calendar and put equations on each day using these four things (blah blah something about quadratic equations A B C D squared blah blah)
Me- Let me see it.
(I looked at his paper, and saw something that looked like Chinese hieroglyphics numbered from 1 to 31, and knew this was WAY beyond any math I had EVER even ATTEMPTED.)
L- What do you think?
Me- I think if you did all of that during class time, you could have finished it if you would have paid attention the first time around, to the date it was due.
L- What are you saying?
Me- You are on your own.
L- I KNEW THAT!!!
Let me just say, I made straight A's in school, but I was not a genius. I had to work very hard at it. Something like this project would have involved many a tear, and much heartache. I knew people like Levi, and they made me sick, lol. As of this morning, he had all but three. He said he could do them on the bus. Cross your fingers.
