To follow up on our conversation yesterday, Jimmy said, "Hey mom. I took a test today. You know that D-?"
Well today I think it is going to go down to a C.
Jimmy, your grade would go UP to a C from a D- not down.
So, I don't want my grades to go down?
Later he says, "MOm. They put this new glass in the window, but they say it isn't glass, it's plastic so it doesn't break. Can I punch it really hard to see if they are telling the truth?"
No, Jimmy, you can't. How dumb are you (I ask jokingly)?
His eyes, twinkling, he says, "Now THAT is a very good question."
