Words of Encouragement From My Oh-So-Supportive Dad

Context: I was talking about a piece of Spanish grammar that has no English equivalent and that I can't figure out with the Principal.

The Principal: It's just grammar. You'll figure it out. You're a smart girl.

Me (feeling warm and fuzzy): You think so?

The Principal: Oh yes. You're definitely smarter than a head of lettuce.

Me: . . . .

The Principal: And I know you could give a turnip a run for its money.

Me: . . . .

The Principal: I'm not talking about any average turnip here. I mean the big kind.

Me: How kind of you.

The Principal: Isn't it?
