(scene opens in mini van)
Me: Alright Delta! It’s a Friday! Still liking school?
Delta: (morose) Not really.
Me: Why not?
Delta: (melancholy sigh) Well…it’s just….it’s just that I know everything already.
Me: Really. Huh.
Me: So, what you need to do is do really well on all your tests and they’ll move you up a grade.
Delta: Move me?
Me: Yeah, if you show them how smart you are, instead of going second grade next year, you go to third. You can skip one.
Delta: (with wonder) Really? I think I will do that! That is a great idea! Thanks mom!
