Horror for who? The ant?

A horror for the ant and for adriana's parents.

I can see why the ant is in jeopardy buy why are her parents?

Why wouldn't they be?

I would think her parents are probably the type that do not get ruffled easily or at all.

Hmm, never met her Dad (her parents are divorced). But her Mum is pretty nice, she was dating some guy while I was over at her house.

So the family that dates together...

What does that mean?

adriana said she is hoping for a 1 or an S -- she did 5 questions, so she should get a 1 provided her answers are right!

Presumably the daughter and the mother were dating at the same time. I have heard of synchronized swimming but synchronized dating is new.

Her Mum's boyfriend was obviously getting some though, whereas obviously I was not.

He might have been better at math than you.

That is possible -- I don't know much about him, though.

Yes, probably. I'm definitely not attracted to adriana anymore.

It is no wonder with her whining.

I wonder if she will contact me ever again after tomorrow. After all, she will have no need for me.

Will she be taking no math from now on?

I need some rest, See you later.

No, she is doing a maths degree at Warwick -- although I will probably be too busy to help her with maths. I will probably be helping some other girl at UCL with theirs.

Sort of like how some guy at my school asked me to help him with his maths during his retake year. I was just thinking, you must be joking.

**zetafunc.****Guest**

Okay, see you later.

Maybe in some elements but definitely nowhere near that calibre...

STEP III today, last exam, last ever day of school. I have a feeling this paper will be tough.

Hi;

Good luck!

Boy, that was really tough. Let us hope my messy scribble is enough for a 1.

Was it that tough?

Definitely. I expect 60/120 to be a grade 1. Hanh says she failed and is going to buy alcohol to drown her tears. adriana, I don't know yet, but I suspect he wants to do the same.

I gave it my all -- I think it was good enough for a 1. We'll see.
