/csb alert

I took a "gifted & talented" test in the sixth grade and didn't make the cut.  I was very surprised by the kids who did make the cut.  I knew I was smarter.

Anyway, two weeks later, the guidance counselor tells me they made an error in scoring the test and I did make the cut, so I joined the district's gifted program

Then i found out that I hated "gifted" students.

/ stop with the farkin' puns!
