The Dumbest Nerd


So, Joseph comes home from school the other day and says: "Mom, I'm the dumbest nerd."

I, of course, want to know who called him a dumb nerd and why. He tells me that I don't get it, so I ask him to explain. He tells me that they split up into Math groups today. They put the kids who are working at the same ablility levels together to work on different math projects. Apparently he got put into the smartest group. I ask him how he knows his group is the smartest. He rolls his eyes at me and says: "Mom, you just know. I'm in with all of the math nerds." (They call themselves that, so they are ok with it.) He then informs me that even though he is in the smart group, he is the dumbest one in his group. He's okay with it though. He's happy to be the "dumbest nerd." His friend Henry is also in the group. He happens to be the smartest nerd, so he can help Joseph out.

P.S.--Check out my new Photo-a-Day blog.

Joseph is the coolest dumbest nerd I know.

That is too cute. If you are going to be the dumbest, that would be the group to be the dumbest of!

What a coincidence, I am usually the nerdiest dumb person in any given group... ...tell Lil' Joe that things could definitely be worse...

That's the best place to be! Especially in Math class :)

Brian,
Are you a big She-Ra fan? Not that there's a problem with that... ...I was just wondering, based on your new picture. I'm more of a He-Man fan.

Brian said...

No, Becca, not so much a She-Ra fan, but a Hordak fan (for obvious reasons). That has long been a nickname of mine growing up. Hordak is the former mentor of Skeletor, but Skeletor banished him to another dimension and took over (short history lesson for all you who don't care). I was a big He-Man fan also, but I have allegiance to Hordak.
