The Semi-Gifted Students Academy


I’m driving my son to UCI this morning . . . he’s taking a couple of classes at the Gifted Students Academy.

“Only about half the students are gifted,” he informs me. “The rest are stoo-pid.”

“How can you tell they’re stupid?” I ask.

“I can just tell.”

“I mean are they actively doing stupid things, or they can’t answer questions?”

“Both.” Then: “Drive faster. Mom dropped me off late yesterday and I almost had to run to get to class on time.”

“That’s good. Your years of athletic training are finally paying off for you.”

“I said I almost had to run.”

“Oh. What happened next? You got to class and almost had to think?”
