Today’s things are: basket, xylophone, scream
The scream from the front of the classroom alerted us to something terrible.
Miss Teresa had pushed back her chair from the desk and was watching horrified at the xylophones piled on her desk.
She was repairing for our music class, xylophones 101when she discovered a large cockroach on one of the instruments.
It was clear Miss Teresa didn’t like cockroaches and she spent the rest of the day a real basket case muttering over and over, “What if I’d touched it.”
