That thing I was working on? With those other two people? Got great news about it last night. *\o/*
It was Curriculum Night at our high school yesterday evening. That guy I married came with me. I followed one son's schedule, he followed the other's. I'm convinced teachers love
curriculum night. I seriously believe they practice for it all year. Because then they can have conversations like this, which make you feel proud and stupid all at once. Teacher:
Your son has a great grasp of this material. He must get a lot of support at home. Me:
We're very involved in our kids' education. Teacher:
His strategy for solving probability density functions is particularly impressive. He told me he gets his math skills from you.Me:
That's a complete lie. Teacher:
*laughs* We're going to be covering Algebraic Graph Theory next. Remember that?Me:
Not remotely. He really was lying. I never got past Calculus. Teacher:
Well, Discrete Math is related to Calculus.Me:
Except it's circumspect and inoffensive, right?Teacher:
*laughslaughslaughs* You're funny.Me:
Thanks. I'm also totally serious.
