Father: How was school today, Dominic?
Son: I hate school!
Father: Why? What happened?
Son: I bombed the test in my mid-term exam.
Father: It's just one exam. Can you re-take the exam?
Son: Yes, but it's so humiliating! I don't want my friends to know I failed!
Father: Why didn't you do a good job?
Son: I don't know. I sat down in my seat, looked at my paper, and then my mind just went totally blank.
Father: Do you think you studied enough for the exam?
Father: So you must fight tooth and nail. I believe you can pass it this time.
