School Report

Lucy's school report was more than disappointing. It wasn't that the eight year old struggled with her studies so much as she couldn't be bothered with them. her homework and examination results were fine – 100% in every subject except religion and critical observation. The former had the note: "accepts all religions as equally valid as refuses to criticise any" and the latter: "ascribes fanciful notions to everything – believes fairies are responsible for the flowers".

It was her classroom behaviour that elicited the unfavourable remarks: "Does not pay attention", "easily distracted", "des not make friends easily" and so on, though no teacher faulted her work.

Lucy could see the frown darken her father's face. "Tea, Daddy?" she said. "I learned how to make it today."

Yes. Too clever for her own good.
