Today was report card day. Grandma picked me up from school. She couldn't even wait to get home to read it! She stood there in the middle of the sidewalk reading every word. She was making me really nervous. She kept looking for the part where it says I made it into Grade 3 but couldn't find it. Then she made me feel even worse by commenting on my marks!

"What's this "C" in math, Maddy?" she asked me. "I thought math was your best subject!"

I groaned. 

"Er Maddy ... you got a "C" in writing too!"

I looked at the ground. 

"I can't see if you've made it or not ... " she said. She was getting frust-er-ated.

I was dying. I was so afraid she say I'd have to stay in Grade 2 for another year! 

Suddenly she brightened up. "Here it is!" said Grandma. "You've made it!"

"YAY!! YAY" I screamed and screamed. I was so happy I wanted to tell everyone. "I PASSED! I PASSED" I yelled. There was no-one around to hear me except Grandma. So for once she didn't tell me to shush up and calm down. 

"You really had me worried for a minute there, Grandma! You shouldn't do that!" I told her. She was still looking at that darn report card. I didn't want to know any more. 

"Oh what's this?" she said. 

I didn't like the sound of that ... 

"What? WHAT? WHAT NOW Grandma?" I asked her. 

"Well you got an A- in acting and drama ..." she said. She was laughing. 

"Something wrong with that, Grandma?" I asked her. 

"No not at all Maddy. But it just proves what I always say about you ... "

"What's that?"

"You're a little drama queen!" Grandma laughed. 

Now, I'm not sure if Grandma was saying something good or bad about me! Adults! Sheesh! So confusing sometimes!
