"I got a negative two."
"One of the questions was a," stopped listening momentarily here, "so really it was a negative one."
I was quiet for a minute while I tried to figure that out. "Are you saying you got less than none right? One or two less than none? Is that even possible?"
"Mom, it means I got one wrong," he said, exasperated. "Minus one. Maybe you shouldn't be worrying about my math tests."
Maybe not, but I'm concerned for his grammar and sentence structure though.
I'm awful with commas and have always been told I use them too often so I work around them with dashes :)
