The bell rang. I settled into my seat to get comfortable for a long forty minutes of Geometry. A nearby chair groaned with dissatisfaction as an overly big student plopped himself down; late, as usual.
“To name a line, any two points on that line can be used,” the teacher began, but soon all I heard was, “blah, blah, blah” and then it turned into a slight murmur and quickly faded to oblivion.
Geometry was replaced by awesome sounds – sounds I’d never noticed before.
of a pen as it is being slid across the rings of a notebook.
of a piece of paper being torn from that binder.
of that paper just before being thrown into the garbage.
of gum as it is annoyingly chomped.
of tennis shoes being dragged across the floor.
of a tongue ring being played with.
of a piece of hard candy being rolled around in the mouth.
of the dry erase board getting wiped off.
of knuckles being popped.
of “someone” falling asleep and knocking her head on her desk.
of the students laughing at that “certain someone.”
of high heels as they move to the back of the room.
My head jerks up and I wipe drool from my chin. I am rudely awakened from my lovely place of oblivion. I look up and see my teacher as she looms above me.
She makes that awful sound with her fingers again just because she can and gives me a not so pleasant look. I sit upright in my seat and am suddenly extremely interested in Geometry.
