Only With Me
I was going to blog about how the land I live on is haunted by Indians and how we’ve been seeing some huge black thing in the backyard1, but I’ll just save that for some rainy day or when I feel less spooked. The strangest things always happen when I research anything related to the Van Zandt County Indian grounds.
Until I hit my forehead with my straightener because I missed my hair, I didn’t have anything else to blog about. I now have a new topic to discuss on my blog. Feel free to laugh – no, really. I’m quite comfortable with this. I mean, you’re about to find out about a lot of new talents you probably never even thought I’d have.
I trip as I walk upstairs.
I’m pretty sure I’ve mastered this. Or, I’ll sort of sway backwards. Yes, sway. Odd, no? I thought so, too. Senior year I was walking to Ms. Castro’s2 Algebra II class – it was my last class of the day – and as I was walking up the first flight of stairs, I fell backwards. Who in the world does that??!! ME. ONLY WITH ME, THIS HAPPENS.
If you know anyone else who does this (or it’s you), let’s start a special club. We’ll call it some really cool and spiffy name and make everyone else all jealous because we’re able to do this and they’re not. 😉
Hm. What else? How about that awkward moment when you start smiling in class because the teacher said “You are elated,” and all you heard was “U-R-L”. Then the teacher asks you if there’s a problem, and you lack a proper response to that, so you just say, “I’m just really happy we’re learning about __ today,” and then the entire class just laughs at you. Yeah, okay.
Senior year in biology, we had to do this presentation project. To do this, we had to use computers and the Internet. There was an X over the Internet symbol on my group’s computer for a whole ten minutes, and we only had twenty minutes to work on the project for that day. >.> “The computer we are using is not connected to the Internet,” I said to the teacher. You know what her response was? Well, first of all she bursted out laughing. Afterward, when the entire class was staring, she decided to finally say, “That’s impossible. The Internet cannot go down. Do you even know what you’re talking about? No? That’s what I thought. Now, why can’t you work?” I replied, “Because the Internet symbol on the toolbar has an X over it.” She rolled her eyes and gave me busy work.
The next day, the computer had a piece of white copy paper that said “NOT WORKING!” taped to the grey plastic piece of the monitor.
Teachers that are always talking about their problems and are all me this and me that are bad teachers.
Those are just three incidents. I plan to share more in the near future.
P.S. It takes a lot of concentration and hard work to trip over flat surfaces. Praise those that do. 😉
