Summary: Cassandra and CSM discuss young Jeffrey's report card.  Response to 155 word vignette challenge: Report Card Day.

"No, Cassandra.  Look at this B in Science.  What is science, anyway?  What happened to chemistry and biology?"

"He's only in 4th grade, Clarence. They don't divide them yet.  And he got all these A's.  The teacher gave him excellent marks on all the Social and Personal Growth categories."

"But there's a Needs Improvement mark on Works Independently."

"It's the only one.  You know how he's been looking forward to this trip."

"And I told him he could go on vacation with Robert and his family only if he brought home a report card I could be proud of." He stubbed out his cigarette in the ashtray and shook his head, "I won't teach my son that I don't stand by my word."

He leveled his gaze at the boy standing at the end of the kitchen table, "Jeffrey, I'm sorry, but you can't go."
