Detention Hall

So one of my detainees came into detention hall with nothing to do yesterday. I told him to grab a book from the bookshelf. His pick: Bless Me, Ultima by Rudolfo Anaya. Um...don't think he was going to read that one. So I handed him:

And showed him my story in Blood Lite II. The first line of "The Unfortunate Persistence of Harold Francis Beamish" begins with the words: "On their way to drunkenness..."

Detention hall kid: "This story is making me thirsty."

True story.

Ha! I like that kid. Erm...Is that the wrong answer, sir?

It's great how you're molding young minds : )

Hahaha. Nice.

Aaron Polson said...

Cate - No one calls me sir except for you and Alan Davidson. ;)

Natalie - I'm such a role-model.

Ken - At least he's reading...that's what I tell myself.

Gotta love detention duty. Not. Sounds like you both made the most of it!
