What I know for sure

When you get an e-mail from your child's teacher and the only thing in the subject line is the child's name followed by an exclamation point, good news will not be found inside.

Is that ALL you're going to tell us??? We want to "KNOW THE REST OF THE STORY"!

That's probably better than...

ARGH!!

or

HELP!!

I'm sure the e-mail continued by saying that your little darling really should consider early application to Harvard.

(Perhaps not. Don't leave us hanging here.)

@Mom and Lori -- Oh, it was all about the state of his desk, which she described as disastrous. And how he was missing assignments that had been shoved in the back of his desk. "I have to figure out how to help him be better organized," she said. Wonder if now is the time to point out that the apple is not falling far from the tree.

As someone who has lived to tell the tale of the "unorganized One" ... in contrast to her older sister who puts the hyphen in anal retentive ... look forward to the comment from standardized testing: "Has difficulty differentiating fact from fantasy."
But, in the words of Buffett (Jimmy, not Warren), "Just what's wrong with that?" :)
