A conversation with the kid:

  • Didn’t you know I placed second in spelling.
  • That’s good, that means you’re getting better in the classroom.
  • No, not in my class.
  • What do you mean class, I don’t get it.
  • I got second place in the school trials for spelling.
  • Hmmm, now that’s different. You’re supposed to be happy with that, second is good.
  • Well, I could’ve gotten that simple word spelled correctly.
  • Don’t worry about it, do you want to do some spelling exercises?
  • No
  • Why not?
  • It’s boring.
  • Well, you could pretend you’re eighteen years old in Half-life and spell every word correctly.
  • I’ve done it already, but I could do more, plus it’s boring trying to be adult.
  • Ooooo-keeeyyyy, how ’bout this…[scratches head]
  • what…
  • I’ll go get the dictionary and I’ll put you through some interesting spelling test.
  • No!

 Conclusion: Raising kids in America is hard.
