Odd Goods

My son attends Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology here in northern Virginia. It's a magnet school attracting talented math and science students from around the northern Virginia area and frequently wins and/or places in many regional and national academic and science competitions.

Last year, during the freshmen orientation, one of the upper class girls was talking to the incoming freshmen girls, telling them that the odds were very good (being that the girl to boy ratio is rather low). She continued with "BUT..... the goods are very, very odd."

My wife and I like to tell and re-tell this story often, especially when my son is around (definitely an odd good). I'm sure he's cringing now that I've blogged it.
