In which our Heroine gets the Grade.
It occurs to me that some of you may want a report on how I am doing overall. Just as parents receive a report card documenting their child’s progress in school, I now offer you a summary of my strengths and weaknesses. May it be more illuminating than those inarticulate slips of paper were back in the day.
