Divide to 9


AES:    I’m going to have a heart attack seeing these grades!

SON:   All the subjects are getting harder.

AES:    That’s not the issue!

SON:   Even our top 1 student, she went down to top 3.

AES:   I don’t care; she’s not even my daughter.

SON:   See, if you will add all my grades and DIVIDE them to 9, my total average is 86! I passed.

AES:   So you like Math now??

Son:  index


I haven’t talked to my son for two days now, he really pissed me off. And of course, I want him to realize that I am mad.

I know his capacity; he has a bright mind, but he doesn’t have a study habit at all. That’s what we always struggle.

Two weeks ago, it was their third grading exam. I called him from overseas to check on him if he was studying. He said he is about to start. After 30 minutes, I called him again and he said he was done studying. I was like wtf? 30 minutes?  I ask too many of Why’s, and he just answered that he has a computer mind, can save everything.


I don’t know if I was to laugh or scold him again. I just don’t have the energy anymore. Can I divide my responsibility to anyone? Sigh.

  1. Lol. Serious subject matter, but the context… somehow it tickles the funny bone. 🙂 Life is full of these amazing juxtapositions. These moments give something worth thinking about, and perhaps unexpected answers on how to proceed as well.
