Teacher: Alright, who’s next? Carrie? Favorite poem, did you bring one?

Carrie, Student: . . . Yeah.

Teacher: Why don’t you come to the front of the class, and share it with us all.

Carrie: Listen. Listen. “This unfrequented place to find some ease, ease to the body some, none to the mind. Times past and what once I was and what am now. O wherefore was my birth from heaven foretold. Twice by an angel, who at last in sight of both my parents all in flames ascended.”

Teacher: Okay that was . . . uh, disturbing. That is the most you’ve said in class all year. Is there anything else you’d like to share, or you’ve done scaring us for the day?

Ross, Student: Asshole.

Teacher: Excuse me, Mr. Ross. Did you say something.
Ross, Student: I said awesome. I just thought what Carrie read was awesome. Didn’t you, Mr. Roman?

Teacher: All right who’s next? Nicky . . . I mean Lizzy.
