Forgive me a moment of bragging about my only grandson.
I visited Charlie a couple days after midterm grades were reported to parents. Charlie’s a pretty sharp guy and he especially shines in math.
Eager to hear about his progress, I asked about his grades. I noticed his parents' faces turn beet red as they exchanged a knowing glance.
"Charlie's in big trouble, Gam," remarked his concerned dad. "Tell her about math, Charlie."
With that, Charlie took a deep breath and confessed. He had gotten a D in math.
