Elementary (School), My Dear Teacher

, , , , , | Learning | September 27, 2017

(This happens in the fourth grade. My teacher is reading from a popular series of mystery novels for children. When it comes to the part of the story where the detective is about to solve the case, the teacher stops reading.)

Teacher: “Now, can anyone here solve this mystery?”

Me: “I can!”

(I then proceed to lay out, in a very methodical manner, step-by-step, the criminal’s entire plot and the evidence that led to the detective discovering him. My teacher, and the entire class, stand there agog at my deductive reasoning. After some stunned silence, the teacher speaks.)

Teacher: “Um…yeah. That’s exactly right. How on earth did you ever figure that out?”

Me: “Well, um, I’ve already read this one.”
