|An Important Test

“I got the answer.” I called to George.
“That didn’t take too long,” he called from his office. He played a computer game in there most evenings. “Did you pass?”
I laughed. What a crazy question. Like this is something you pass or fail, or can study for.
I walked into his office, the results in hand. “It’s a plus.”
“Not a minus? So it’s pass or fail?” He grinned.
“It’s pretty much yes or no. Easiest test I ever took.” I returned his grin.
“But the hardest subject to learn.”
“You’ll be a great father.”
“And you, my dearest Emily, will be an amazing mother.”
