I would like to know the meaning of "bright" in the next passage.
A fifth grader looked downcast, so her teacher asked,
"What's the problem, Carol?
I hope it's not homework again."
"Well, uh, yes, it is." replied Carol.
"I was stupid and made my homework paper into a paper airplane."
"Carol, you're right, that wasn't a very bright thing to do," said the teacher,
"but this once I'll let you just unfold the paper and hand it in."
"Oh, but that won't work," said Carol, looking even sadder.
"You see, the plane was hijacked."
"Carol, you're right, that wasn't a very bright thing to do,"
It means that it wasn't a very clever or intelligent thing to do.
