Old Report Cards

My parents at report card time.  And me last month when I found my old report cards and read the teacher’s comments, it made me ask myself Am I Dumb?

I did learn one powerful lesson at school, I’m slightly below mediocre, the proof was hammered home in all my report cards and it was consistent year after year, a thrice annual reaffirmation of my limitations. I mean sitting in a classroom with a million distractions was how everyone else was learning and a lot of them got A’s and B’s so clearly the problem was me.
