Today’s things are: orange grove, bee, Jack Frost
There was a bee in the classroom today, and Miss Teresa was in a panic thinking that if anyone was stung she’d have to deal with it and she hated dealing with any form of illness.
She called for us to be calm explaining that as the orange grove was awash with blossoms this time of year, there were bees all over the place.
She tried to turn the event into a natural history lesson but Jack Frost, the coldest kid in the class, took upon himself to go at the bee with a rolled-up magazine and before anyone could say or do anything the poor bee was squashed against the window.
Miss Teresa was struck dumb by jack’s act of senseless violence even though he explained to Miss Teresa that he was acting valiantly to save her honour in the face of an impending attack upon her person by the said bee.
Jack was so full of it we all laughed while Miss Teresa sat horrified at her desk her eyes focused on the now deceased bee.
