Bad to the Bone

GIDEON (AGE 8): Daddy, I think I’m a genius.

ME: Really? And what are you basing that on?

GIDEON: Well, you know that sciencey guy? Uh . . . what’s his name?

ME: Albert Einstein?

GIDEON: Yea, him! Well, you know how he was bad at school? Well, I’m even badder at school than he was, so that must mean I’m smarter than him.

ME: Not badder, worse.


ME: You said you were badder at school than him. The word is worse, not badder.

GIDEON: Oh! Wow! I’m even smarter than I thought!
