We opened your mail...

Received a plain brown wrapper in the mail yesterday. It was addressed to one Oakley C. Merideth, and being the responsible parents that we are, we promptly opened it. Turns out it contained the notification that OAKLEY C. MERIDETH (yes, they even spelled your name correctly) has been designated an AP Scholar with Honor. According to the accompanying documents, this is awarded to students who receive an average grade of at least 3.25 (you exceeded this) on all AP exams taken, and grades of 3 or higher on four or more of these exams.

Sorry we opened your mail, Mister Mokes, but we were searching desperately for cash. (Those belated graduation gifts have been coming in quite handy.) If it makes you feel any better, no cash was found. No checks. No pizza coupons. No movie passes. Not even a laminated refrigerator magnet.

Now you can say--MY PARENTS WENT TO THE MAILBOX AND ALL I GOT WAS THIS LOUSY CERTIFICATE:

You must know that's a federal offense, opening other people's mail.

Joe Friday, you've got me scared now.

Flan, that boy is absolutely TOO cute. And brains too.
