Amazing. Absolutely amazing.
I learned how to cure cancer and aced every test I took.
In fact, the teacher let me teach class because he said
I was the smartest in class, the whole class. To top it all off,
I found 5 dollars. Amazing.

Interesting. Very interesting.
The fire alarm was pulled and we all got to leave class.
Later, a living Cougar was spotted in the field so we weren’t
allowed to leave.
Then, the principal informed us there would
be no more tests the rest of the year…
If that’s not an interesting day I don’t know what is.

Imagine your worst day of school….
now multiple that by 100.
I’m failing Lit and my Calculus teacher
made fun of my algebra skills.
My girlfriend broke up with me because she “didn’t want a relationship”,
5 minutes later she changed her FaceBook relationship status to
“In a relationship with Brett.”

I fell down the stairs, broke my finger, and
spilled my lunch all over my teacher.
When I was happy all that was over kids were laughing in
the halls and I thought I was funny. Too bad I didn’t
realize the strand of toilet paper following behind me.

Fine. It was fine.
You asked how my day was so I’m not going to lie.
No sugar-coated entertaining exaggerated response for you. It was just
simply fine.

What? School?
I didn’t go.

Wow. That was like...laughing to crying. Okay, not crying but...Sad. I am sad because of how true that is. "Fine": The ultimate indication that your child is jaded by school. Excellent writing!
