Dear Dumb Diary, Year Two: School. Hasn´t this Gone on Long Enough? by Jim Benton.

New Year. Even More Dumb.

Dear Dumb Diary,

When Dad brought i up this morning, I pointed out that I´m doing well in all of my classes except math. And Dad was all like, “You have to do well in all your classes.”

And I was all like, “Who really needs to be good at math, anyway?

And Dad was all like, “I do. I´m an accountant. It´s my job. It´s how the bills get paid around here.”

And I was all like, “dad. If everybody was good at math like you, they wouldn´t have had to hire you.

Face it, the less people everywhere know about math, the better off our family is.”

And Dad´s mouth snapped shut like a big old math textbook. He looked helplessly at Mom.

Yeah, that´s what I thought, Math Guy.
