Question 88....

88: Describe a typical day in junior high school

Easily done! I would awake at 5 a.m. to the sound of my father farting, pooping, and hacking up his lungs (chain smoker) in the bathroom - which was against the wall nearest my head.

I would try to go back to sleep until my mother would scream for me to get awake. It would be a mad scramble for the shower, my brother and I would eat breakfast as fast as we could, get ourselves packed up as best we could to avoid the wrath of my mother (if she were late - dad was gone by now), and try and sneak a video game in before she got down to do the laundry. Wait by the door until you heard the bus and then make a dash for the end of the driveway.

Once at at school, off to the locker, stare at the girls (but dare not talk to them!), and read that last chapter of A Midsummer Night's Dream, coast through English and Social Studies (cake!), watch Voyage of the Mimi in Earth Science, dread Math, suffer through German (auf Deutsch, bitte, auf Deutsch!), to violin lessons and then off to baseball practice.

Once home, fold the laundry, vacuum the house and prepare for mother's arrival - no dishes in the sink or else. Get your rear upstairs and be busy so she has less reason to go off the handle.

You may think I'm kidding - but that about sums up an average day. I wonder where I found the time to set those woods on fire with my best friend? :)
