Why I may never pass on my parental wisdom

Why I may never pass on my parental wisdom.

I SHOULD HAVE BEEN SOCRATES!!!

Me: I SHOULD HAVE BEEN SOCRATES!!!
Teacher: No, you should’ve been listening!

It looks like I was keeping a running tally of mistakes by “N.B.” (I don’t know who that could be) during a class that covered some of Socrates’ philosophy, as evidenced by the quote:

“The mark of one who knows is to know what he does not know.”

But clearly, the teacher was unimpressed. Ah, sophomore high school English. Makes me feel so… philosophical.
