"Mom, I think I'm gonna like being the Star Student."
"Oh, yeah? Why's that, bub?"
"Well, because everyone's going to be looking at me. But not because I did something bad this time."
"Well, that's true, I suppose. And do you like it when everyone looks at you?"
"Well, it's not so much the looking, but what I really like is that they all have to be quiet while I do all the talking."
[Mm-hm. A boy after my own heart.]
