The SCSon called me at work today. "Hey what'd you get on the SAT?"
Me: [redacted - the actual score unimportant to the story]
SCSon: Hey, Me Too! (apparently his results arrived today in the mail)
True story - we tied scores for the college entrance exam. Though the split is significantly different. My score was about 2/3's math, 1/3 english. His was 50/50 even steven. Go figure. My english teachers didn't earn much respect while my math teach's did... The feeling was probably mutual.
Then again... I did fine with Eng 1A in college... (and spelling has never been a problem.) so where was the problem? Oh and I later had an 8 year run of a monthly column with very few editorial corrections... I bet none of them ever had a word in published on print.
I received the "we tied" news with a little sadness. Going into the test I wished him to beat my score and told him same. Today I am sad that he didn't but proud that he tied! Good onYa!

Good parents always want their children to do better (and be better) than they did.
