Performance Anxiety

The other day, Scout told steakums that she couldn’t go to her new school because they will want her to spell “spider” and she can’t spell “spider”, so she will get in trouble and she doesn’t want to get in trouble, and also they won’t let her wear pajamas.

Stacey explained that she won’t have to know how to spell “spider” but Scout just takes this as proof that we don’t know anything about how the real world works. We are naive if we don’t think she’s going to have to know how to spell “spider”. Seriously.
