Those four words made the class laugh, but they did not make me laugh. She gave me a look I have never gotten from a teacher before and I knew I was in big trouble. As I watched her fill out the paperwork and to my horror, I knew my parents were going to kill me. After the rest of that school day I was nervous about what my parents would do when they saw the write up in Aspen. I was so nervous as I sat at home waiting to hear the garage door open announcing the arrival of my parents. When my parents got home they did not say anything so I thought I was clear. After many weeks passed and it was summer vacation my parents went onto Aspen to check my grades for the last trimester a month or so after the last day of school and they saw the write up. They did not say anything for a while to see if I was not telling them on purpose or if I just forgot. One night in the summer my family was watching a movie and he told me to come look at his laptop and he showed me the write up. My heart sank, I thought I was in the clear and that I was not going to get in trouble, but I was wrong. My punishment was that I had to send the teacher an apology letter and I had to do all the chores for a week. Now I have learned not to stick rulers in the math teacher’s fan.
