Today Patrick asked (out of the blue, before class) if Alcibiades was really a traitor, and as bad as people say, or have historians given him short shrift.

During break I heard Richard (ever the provoker) say to Patrick, "You lied?!  I thought you were a good boy!"  Patrick (ironically): "Robert is trying to taint my reputation because he's jealous."  Robert didn't catch the irony: "I'm not jealous!  Why would I be jealous?"

Yvonne, another seventh-grader, commented to Steven, "Patrick is so smart, and so humble too. I don't think I could be like that."
