Wow – we have made it to Month 16 of my 365 Project, and that’s no April Fool’s! I think my days would feel a little emptier without blogging, or at least without the thoughts of “I wonder what I’ll see today that I can blog about later.”
Anyway, without further ado, here is my photo and story for Day 2 of the Five Photos, Five Stories Challenge for which I was nominated by Julia.
As a reminder, and in case you’re viewing this as a stand-alone post, here is the challenge description:
“The Five Photos, Five Stories Challenge rules require you to post a photo each day for five consecutive days and attach a story to the photo. It can be fiction or non-fiction, a poem or simply a short paragraph – it’s entirely up to you.
Then each day, nominate another blogger to carry on this challenge. Accepting the challenge is entirely up to the person nominated, it is not a command. And actually, everyone can join in. So feel free to if you like the idea.”
It’s 6:00 PM and 2 girls just finished their last class of the day at their after-school….school, where they further their English education. They learn new vocabulary and more challenging phonics in interactive classes, some based on textbooks, others based on informative magazines. Before leaving school, the 2 girls spend some time inspecting something very small. They believe it to be imperative to have access to the specimen because never before have they seen this up-close. What could fascinate 2 girls so much that they stay in the classroom a few minutes late just to get a thorough inspection before parting ways and going home (or to Taekwondo, or to Math Academy)?
Rewind to a minute before, I am sitting at the desk, closing the magazine we had discussed in class, when all of a sudden–
Student: “Got it!”
Me: “Did you just pull out my hair??”
Me: “That really hurt and it was really not nice of you to do.”
Student: “I wanted it.”
Me: “That doesn’t make it okay; it’s not okay to pull out anyone’s hair. Are you going to apologize?”
Student (without a care): “Sorry.”
Me: “Did you pull it out because it’s a different color than yours?”
Me: “Okay, well put it under a microscope so you can get a good look at it. Better keep it safe.”
Story: Fact or fiction??
Story: Unfortunately, fact!
Today, I’d like to nominate The Souzapalooza Blog because she is a social media master with the blog to show for it! Entirely up to you whether or not you choose to participate! 🙂
