Ok so remember yesterday when i posted about how great my class was and how wonderful everything was? Cuz, you know I get to go to the Burghley house for creative writing. (Eeeh! I smile just writing that!) Well, what i didn't tell you, because I couldn't write it while I was still laughing so hard about it, was that I was the WORST student EVER, yesterday. The worst.
Not kidding. Had I been in 3rd grade my name would've been on the blackboard--with like 5 checks behind it too. It was only through the great mercy of the teacher that i wasn't actually kicked out of the class altogether. Well, that and the fact i'm paying for school now! LOL!
So what could I have done that was so bad you ask? Muhaha! I couldn't stop laughing. I mean it. It was awful! I disrupted the whole class! You have no idea! I even apologized profusely and still I laughed on. LOL! (Who am i kidding? I'm laughing now as I write this! LOLOLOL!)
Anyway, our assignment was to bring in newspaper headlines "that struck our fancy." We didn't know at the time, but the headline we brought in we had to give to our neighbors. So the lady next to me hands me this headline and I was supposed to guess what the story was about. And then i was supposed to write my guts instincts and emotions down on this paper. Which would've been great and all except the headline was:
"He Had Toilet Paper Stuck All Over His Head."
No lie. I'm not kidding. I'm not even exaggerating. That is EXACTLY what the headline read. Well, as i'm sure you've guessed by now, I burst into laughter. Hard, loud, crazed laughter.... for like ten minutes. Which the teacher tried to drown out with things like,
"Now class, I want you to see that headline and write down what you think the story is talking about. What is your gut instinct when you see that headline? Is it fear? Is it curiosity? Is it anger? Really delve in there and think what it is that could've happened to make such a headline."
I tried to be good, honest. I tried to hold it in, but I just kept thinking of these stupid scenarios and why some man would have toilet paper stuck to his head. And when i wasn't thinking of those, my brain was numb from laughing at my extremely witty self and the ideas that were emerging, so honestly, I couldn't stop even if I wanted to. See what I mean?
Well, I have my paper in front of me now and these are the ideas that I could calm myself down long enough to write, before I snorted and began to laugh all over again.
1. Did the man fall in the Loo head first?
2. Was he ambushed by small children?
3. Does he have a mummy fetish?
So what do you think really happened? And come on, admit it! You would've laughed too!
