After class we all bolted to the front to request our topic. Mrs. Hill spoke over the din, told us to be quiet and said for the group rep to line up and she would write down who got what. By some miracle I was the first there to talk to her and waited politely as she finished up some business. She finally lifted up her head and looked at me ...just in time for Shauna McPherson to come rushing up, completely ignoring the line and bark, "MRS. HILL! OUR GROUP WANTS THE SALEM WITCH TRIALS!"
I waited for Mrs. Hill to chastise Shuana for igonoring the rules, for rudely inserting herself in front of me...and was even more agog as she wrote down Shauna's name by The Salem Witch trials!
"Wait a minute!" I said. "I waited in line like you said! She just butted in!"
"I guess you learned a lesson," Mrs. Hill said.
I guess I did.
