My little boy in class one has always been at the 18th position in his class. I asked him one day when he came home with his sequential results “Can you not be the first in your class, why are you always the 18th”? He frawned at me and said “No mama. First is number 1 and number one is too small, Alisia took number 2 and was crying, I will not take that one”. “Is that”? I asked him. Looking at me and realising I was not really happy with him, he came closer to me and said “Don’t worry mama since the 18th position is too small, I will go to the 20th just for you”. Behold on St. Valentine’s Day when I came back from work, I was in the sitting room where he happily handed me a piece of paper, when I looked at it, it was written “SEQUENTIAL POSITION 20TH”. What a gift for St. Valentine’s Day, I laughed.
