A bit under the weather in this post-halloween time period. Sinuses clogged, lingering cough. This is one reason I don’t like teaching children. Anyhow, here’s the story for this week’s Friday Fictioneers
Chairman of the Bored
by Miles Rost
“Alright, so we finally got the plan together,” Chelsey said, pointedly.
“First, we’ll file our nails and act like we’re bored,” Natasha replied, pointing at a picture of a nail file.
“Then, when the professor’s back is turned, we’ll yawn loudly and fidget like a sugar-eating ADHD child,” Marie proclaimed, pointing to the open mouth picture.
“And finally, when he’s so frustrated with us that he kicks us out of the lecture, we go off and get drunk at The Corner!”
All three nodded and put their hands in the middle of the table.
“One, Two, Three! WE ARE BORED!”
They sure are working hard – it took a lot of brain power for them to come up with that plan, and such original thinking! I think I know those kids. Very cute dialogue – reminds me so much of my high school teaching years.
Dear Miles, Hey those kids need a better motivator than a boring teacher. I like their plan for getting out of class and being ‘spirited’ away on the corner! Good job! Nan 🙂
I used to tell my son that if he put as much effort into homework and studying as he did finding ways to avoid them he’d be a straight A student. Cute story.
Sorry you’ve been under the weather. Hope you feel better soon.
Miles, that really makes me laugh, especially the last line. Just the picture of people acting like cheerleaders about boredom. 🙂
I modeled this based on Korean students. 😛
