“Teacher, we learned a new jump rope tune.”

Made a mistake kissed a snake

“Teacher, Joe says I’ve got a girlfriend and I’m gonna punch him if he says it again.”
“Hey, teacher, my grandma is staying with us this week.”
“I forgot my homework.”
I call out, “Good morning, everyone. Now please stop the talk and take your seats.”
As we settle down, the door opens one more time and in walks a little girl, late again and alone. She was a plain child, rather nondescript, straight stringy hair – seldom clean. https://onetahayes.com/2017/01/29/nameless-2/
