How to get an A? Life is tough How to get an F?

An organic story

From the instant I laid eyes on O’Chem I felt a bond between us, actually, more like a triple bond.  It was an incredibly polarizing attraction. The feeling was out of this orbital.  I mean before I met O’Chem, I was merely a single electron.  So it was a pretty radical experience. Then, however, the torsional twisting was taking a strain on our relationship. Sadly, our thermodynamics was uphill; we just didn't have the right chemistry. It was an unstable relationship, or maybe it was just a lack of equilibrium. We weren’t able to rearrange into a more stable configuration. We decided that we were equally at fault, so it ended in a homolytic split.
