Mrs. Zimmerman asked to stay behind after class. What had I done wrong?

"John," she said, "I have to talk to you about your iPod project."

"Yes, ma'am?"

She took off her glasses. "I don't know what to say. You were supposed to express yourself through song choices. But yours is entirely plagiarized. You chose your songs using the Allmusic Guide, Q Magazine, the RS top 500, and Dave Marsh."

"Yes. I admit it."

"Oh, John. You're so creative usually. I have to give you a D."

Man, the cruellest milieu for a dream is 5th grade, don't you agree?
