Sam's Motive for Sororicide



Kira:  I got an award at school.  I think we should go out for ice cream.

Me:  An award! Good for you!  For what?

Kira: Academic over-achievement

Sam:  WHAT?!

Kira:  Academic Over-achievement.

Sam:  Kira, I HIGHLY doubt that they are giving out an award for OVER achieving in academics.

Me:  I think ice cream is a GREAT idea!

Kira:  What does "academic" mean?

Sam:  Seriously!?!  Oh my GOD!

Kira:  I'm serious.  What does it mean?

Me:  School work

Kira: I over-achieved on my school work???

Sam: Uuuuuuuuggggghhhhh!!!!

Me:  I think the award is probably for "academic achievement."  Schools don't really consider doing well on schoolwork "Over" achieving.  It would be like being "too pretty" or "too rich."  You can't really be too much of a good thing.

Kira:  I haven't taken a shower since Sunday.

Sam:  Is there another kid with her name at her school?  I think the award went to the wrong person.

Kira:  Jealous much?  Maybe you should start over-achieving a little more.

Sam:  IT'S NOT OVER ACHIEVING!

Kira:  Not for you.

    1. So did I, but I thought it was mostly for being obnoxious and annoying.
