finny and gene chapter 4
Are you crazy? It's too late for that. We have to leave for the school right now!
"Shall we have a morning swim?"
That Finny. Doesn't he realize the time? Almost 7am on a school day and he wants to go for a swim. That goof.
"Don't be stupid Finny. I wouldn't waste my time on anything like that. But you know...somebody's got to be the head of the class. "
You're predictable Gene. Always studying. Studying so you can be valedictorian. But you know, you work too hard. It's a good thing I'm here or you'd be having no fun at all!
Typical Finny, always commenting on my studying habits. What's wrong with having the goal to be valedictorian. He speaks as if it's a crime or something. "Besides, he shouldn't be talking. He won the Galraith Football trophy and the Contact Sport Award. If I could win the Ne Plus UAC for my speech as valedictorian, we would be even".
Finny has always been a better athlete than me. But then, I've always been a better student. I'd get great grades while he was almost failing in every subject. And while he's breaking the school swimming record, I, in a sense, still have a life jacket on. I guess in a way we are even already. Could it be?
Did you hear that Leper is going to jump out of the tree today? We should go watch it! You need a break anyway. Hurry up and put the books away!
For crying out loud Finny. I'm trying to study. I'm not going to go watch Leper jump from the tree and ruin my grade.
