Mommy: How was School?
Mommy: Really? An F? You don't really mean an F, do you?
Magpie: Well, actually, you're right, I don't... F minus.
Mommy: Really? Everything or just some parts?
Magpie: F minus. Everything.
Mommy: The teacher? She seemed so nice.
Magpie: F minus.
Mommy: Well, what about the snack? How could snack be an F minus?
Magpie: F minus. It was way too salty.
Mommy? How about the walk to school?
Magpie: It's not that it's too long, it's just that it's unpleasant. I told you F minus everything!!!!!!!
Sigh. There really should be a grade lower than F.
