A Southern Girl Trying to Make a Difference in Sin City

Conversation with the varsity quarterback today:

QB:  I’m dropping my math class.

Me:  School hasn’t even started yet.

QB:  Yeah, I know, Miss, but I already did four maths, and I won’t need calculus in college.

Me:  What are you thinking about for a major?

QB:  Business — sports management

Me:  You will need it for an MBA.  You know an MBA will be essential if a pro-athletic career does not happen, right?

QB:  ***crickets***

Me:  Did you talk to your counselor yet?  Why don’t you try to get through the first couple of weeks of school first before deciding it’s not going to work for you?

QB:  Miss, I don’t want to be a mathlete.  Can’t I just take that class where they teach you to write checks and do your taxes with the African teacher nobody understands?  You know … that real-world math.

Me:  Flash forward 15-20 years.  Do you want to hear the Heisman Trophy winner yelling at you, “Show me the money!”?

QB:  Only if he dances and says “I love black people.”

Me:  Suck it up, buttercup.  You are taking calculus.  You’ll thank me later.
