Did That Really Happen?

Not too many days ago, when Ryan got home from school, he sat down to begin the usual homework routine.

As Kate opened his daily agenda she found a letter stapled inside and she read it aloud, so that Ryan could hear, as well.

"Your child was tested in October of this year, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah...............and he has scored a maximum of this and a miniumum of that.  His scores are ranked nationally at blah, blah, blah, blah."  

In essence, it said that Ryan was really smart in some things and needed to work on some others and that he scored where he should have scored.  It was a long letter with lots of percentages and rankings and comparisons.

After she finished reading, she smiled at Ryan approvingly.  Ryan, bug eyed and mouth gaped said,

"Did that really happen?"
