At least someone thinks I’m smart

It’s 9:13 and I am already done for the day. How awesome is that? Yesterday I decided to ask to take today off from work. Then towards the end of my shift my supervisor asked if I wanted to leave early. It was only about a half an hour early, so I was completely up to going home for the night. Then he said, “And you don’t have to come in tomorrow” My first thought was, Oh crap is this the way they are letting me know I am fired. Then after a moment of panic I remembered I requested the day off only a couple hours before. So, today I get to have a break mostly because I wanted to make sure I didn’t do anything to stupid at work. That’s not why I’m smart though.

I had my math lab today and the TA put up a couple questions on the board. She asked us to work by ourselves and do the best that we could to solve the problems. After about 10 minutes she asked us to get into pairs and help each other with any problems that we had in solving them. I sit in the back of the class usually. A boy moved back to sit next to me. He compared answers with me on the first couple problems, and then he asked how I did the last one. I gave a short explanation for how to plug in the right numbers and he smile and nodded like he followed what I was talking about then I see him look at what I got, write down the answer, and then he asked me to compare. Of course it was exactly what I had written on my paper. I thought it was kind of funny though. Then I stood up to leave after class and he asks if we can study sometime. I have no problem with studying but my schedule sure isn’t very fun to work with. I told him I would be fine with studying with him, and I turned to leave the class.  As I am walking away he says, “Can I at least get your number?” I guess that would be helpful wouldn’t it. I haven’t ever done the whole study thing with a group or another person before because I  get bothered easily when I have to explain things more than once or twice. But I am flattered, at least someone thinks I’m smart.


  1. rofl. I was thinking the same thing, Amy, but you beat me to the punch.

    And, being a guy, I'm pretty sure I know which one it was ;-)

  2. I'm pretty sure you guys are wrong. On any other day I might agree with you, but I seriously rolled out of bed and threw on some clothes and walked out the door. No Makeup, I don't even think I brushed my hair. Goodness, won't you guys just let me be smart for a day?
