Sometimes smart people are stupid. Or optimistic to the point of blindness.
–You'll be as smart as I am someday. Smarter, probably.
Thanks, Mom! But, yeah, no, I won't. Have you looked at yourself lately?
–Ask him to the dance! I'm sure he'd love to go with you.
As if. Have you looked at me lately?
–You'll do better on the next test.
Yeah, that's what you said after the last one.
Oh, sure. But everyone else's FUNNIER.
