Thanks to my friend Andy for this one!
Little Zachary was doing very badly in math. His parents had tried everything. Tutors,mentors,flash cards,special learning centers. In short,everything they could think of to help him improve. Finally, in a last ditch effort, they enrolled Zachary in the local Catholic school.
After the first day, little Zachary came home with a very serious look on his face. He didn't even kiss his mother hello. Instead, he went straight to his room and began studying.
When his mother went up to his room to check on him, books and papers were spread out all over the room and little Zachary was hard at work.
His mother was amazed. Later, she called him down to dinner. To her shock, the minute he was done, Little Zachary marched back to his room without a word, and in no time, he was back hitting the books as hard as before.
This went on for some time, day after day, while his mother tried to understand what made all the difference.
Finally, little Zachary brought home his report card. He quietly laid it on the table, went up to his room and hit the books again.
With great trepidation, his Mom looked at the report card and, to her great surprise, little Zachary had gotten an "A" in math!
She could no longer hold her curiosity. She went to his room and said, "Son, what was it? Was it - the nuns?"
Little Zachary looked at her and shook his head, No.
"Well,then,"she asked, Was it the books,the discipline, the structure, the uniforms? "WHAT WAS IT ALREADY?"
Little Zachary looked at her and said, "Well, on the first day of school when I saw that guy nailed to the plus sign, I knew they weren't fooling around".
Now that's a case of some genuine reflection if ever I saw one!
