The Overachiever

We’re celebrating my dad’s 70th birthday at Buca di Beppo in Brea.

“How’s Casey doing in school?” my dad asks. “Is he a 4.0 student?”

The boy, who’s sitting right there, says, “I’m a lot higher than that.”

“How can you be higher than 4.0?” I ask him.

“I’m an overachiever,” he says.

“You’re an overachiever?” my dad says.

“Yes, sir.”
