Join the club….
I have been failing badly lately.
I need a re-test…
That’s because it is!
Unfortunately you only get one go at it.
It’s ok Aunty, nobody is prepared for this.
Aunty, rumor has it you dropped out the fifth year of third grade.
The grades for my life indicate I didn’t either.
You don’t really wanna pass anyway.
When I was in the hospital last week having a hip replacement, the head floor nurse was a very friendly, talky young woman of about 35. She is in a happy relationship with a military career guy. She shared all their plans: he apparently has made spread sheets and projection charts and what not for the directions their lives will take after he’s retired from the military. Being 70+, I smiled to myself, thinking how all those charts and prognostications and predictions mean absolutely NOTHING. Because I’m also pretty smart and kindly as well as mature and experienced [grin/wink], I didn’t say a word. I’m glad there are still young people who have optimism, and, when those charts/predictions/plans go awry through outside influences, I hope her/their optimism and strength is enough to get them through.
I have that dream often…
No, Aunty….. it’s called a hangover.
I studied. They changed the Questions.
We never really get much instruction. We each learn on our own.
