Back again in his role as the Forty-Four-Year-Old Kid, our son Jeremy reported the following:
As he left a business committee meeting held in a seventh-grade classroom of the private boys’ school where he is the chief financial officer, Jeremy learned that the next event in the room was to be a math test.
Since Jeremy works with numbers all the time and was confident he would do well, he asked the teacher if he could take the test with the kids. When the teacher agreed, Jeremy promised the students that if he didn’t beat the class average, he would buy everyone donuts.
Well, he didn’t beat the class average because he lost fourteen points for failing to show his work.
The class and their teacher enjoyed their donuts.
