Nicole, "D is so intense. She studies for quizzes all night long! She takes every assignment, every grade like it was supremely important."
Me, "Too bad that kind of behavior didn't rub off."
Nicole, "Mom, she's going to be the class Valedictorian!!! Why would I aspire to that?"
Her father, "It's ok. You can be the class Janedictorian. You could study the world of janitorial services! Or perhaps the Drivethrudictorian...?"
