My Family are Mathematical Maniacs
One Monday morning I
woke up to find my mom telling me how much time I had to: brush my
teeth, have breakfast, and catch the bus. Everybody in my family are
smart except, me I don't get it, I think I was taken home by the wrong parents.
I’m off to school, it will be another
miserable day for me because we have a test today and I didn’t even study for
it. After a long
exhausting test I am finally done, it wasn't my fault that I
didn’t know 1.1 was the same as 1.10 well I flunked another one of
those weird tests. My
brother loves school, he thinks tests and quizzes are fun to do, he
freaks me out sometimes.
Another miserable day for me because I:
flunked a test, got sent to the office, did I mention I almost
missed my bus and I came to my parents fighting over math
questions... what a great day! I’m able to get to my room before
they saw me, after a mathematical supper my parents asked me how school
was. I told them I flunked a test, got sent to the office and I almost
missed my bus; they told me that I was grounded once again. Life
never changes, I am always grounded; the only person that gets to go to
his friends' house is my nerdy little brother.
Today my mom was not the same, she didn’t even tell us what we were going to do, she just got up and
made coffee. I got up, got on the bus, and went to school. Today at school
we had a quiz on math and wouldn’t you know it, I aced the quiz, everyone
thought I cheated so I had to redo the test I aced. I guess my
parents gave me smart powers or something. I told my parents that I
aced the test and they gave me permission to go to my friends'
house. I like being smart. The next morning I got up to hear my
parents shocked and yelling ”An A+”. They thought that they were
reading the wrong report card they couldn’t believe it. I knew at that
moment two years of grounding was finished. After school I waited for
my nerdy little brother; he did not look happy when he got off the bus,
I asked him what was wrong and he told me he failed an important test,
I felt so bad because my parents were going to ground him big time. I
thought of a great idea. I would tell my parents he failed because I was
bugging him all night.They fell for it and we both got two weeks of
grounding, he thanked me so much, I said to him “you owe me big
time” and he agreed.
