Pop Quiz: Z's Corner

Z: Mom, we had a quiz in history today.

K: I told you the teacher said he might give a quiz daily.

Z: I know.

K: (silence.)

Z: (Shakes his head slowly.) That quiz hurt my feelings and my grade.

K: (Bursts out laughing. With a response like this, K will not get mother of the year anytime soon.)
K: (Tries to rebound.) You better keep up with your reading.
