Sundays Are For Sebastian—#116

Sebastian is my six-year old and he says some of the funniest things–we have no idea where he gets his material since his mother and I are rather boring, serious people.

With many kids across the country heading back to school, I thought I would share this school-based SAFS that occurred last year in the Spring.

Sebastian: “Daddy why is there no ‘E’?

Me: “Huh?”

Seba: “Why is there no letter ‘E’?”

Me: “I have no idea what you are talking about….”

Seba: “You know, for grades. There is an A, B, C, D, and F, but no E. How come?”

Me: “That is a really good question, I have no idea.”

Seba: “And what do they mean?”

Me: “Well, an A is the best, then comes B …”

Seba: “No, I mean what do they stand for? What does the A mean?”

Me: “As far as I know, nothing. The only one that stands for anything is ‘F’ which means ‘Fail’.”

Seba: “And what does that mean?”

Me: “That means you did not do well enough and you might have to do it all over again.”

Seba: “Are you sure that is the only one that means anything?”

Me: “Pretty sure.”

Seba: “Oh” [Sounding disappointed]


Me: “Why?”

Seba: “I thought the ‘D’ meant ‘Dufus’.”IMG_4258
