2+2 =

Yesterday was placement exam day at school. I had to take a battery of exams to determine the classes I will need to start at the University. Remedial classes that is. The first thing the advisor asked was if I did any writing in my day to day life, write reports for work or have a blog where she could review my writing.

“No. No I do not have a blog.”

I don’t know why I said this so quickly with terror in my voice. Maybe I got scared that a muggle was going to read my blog. An outsider. Maybe I got all junkyard dog because the thought of an English professor reading my dissertation on anal bleaching was….. odd.

So, I sat in the class with twenty year olds and pulled every bit of knowledge on homonyms and homographs I could remember. The math portion was easy; I made a robot out of the little circles where you should put answers. I wouldn’t have a clue so I entertained myself. The killer robot had laser vision that blasted the algebra off the page. Rawr!

Even with the creative math answers I scored exceedingly high on the test. Take that twenty somethings! I guess I’m not s dumb as I thinkz I is.

Yay! Well done on your test and not letting the teacher-types find your blog. Proud of you, StevieB!!

Congrats!
In any case you shouldn't reveal the existence of your blog to everybody. Only selected few should know about it...

Me fail English? That's unpossible.


I'm a smart man, but I still hate tests.

Your dissertation on anal bleaching was eloquent and evocative. It moved me in a way I never thought possible. The knowledge you imparted allowed me to steer clear of shady, back-alley bleachers and seek a certified professional. Not only is my bung brighter, you very well may have saved my life.

Okay, I didn't read that one. I think I understand your hesitation, and I'm no English professor. But I know I can't read your blog without being impressed by your wit and ability to tell a story, and I'm positive I'm not alone. Unless you're applying to BYU, I'd think sharing your talent could only help. :-)

Just like when I took tests back in the day.

glad you did well!
