First question: Define “Manifest Destiny” and write a short essay about it. Manifest Destiny? I’ve never heard of Manifest Destiny. I don’t know anything about Manifest Destiny. I must be in the wrong class No, no there’s Professor Lang, the same students, the time is right, okay, okay. I’ll look at the next question. No, I don’t know the answer to that one, either. Nor the next one. Come on brain, get to work!
I don’t know any of these answers. Everyone else is busy writing. Why don’t I know any answers? Why is my brain sitting in my head like a lump of silly putty? I have to think, think. Now, come on. I’ve been in class every day. I’ve taken enough notes to stretch across the entire state. I studied until I thought I could write the whole text book from memory! I need to relax, get my brain in gear and concentrate.
Now, the world won’t come to an end if I don’t pass this test, will it? Mine will, yes. Oh, God, please let me think. Yes, I’ll pray. Should have done that first. Please, God, I really need your help, please help me on this test, Amen.
Now, Manifest Destiny. Think about it, focus, focus. Oh, yeah, I sort of remember now, something about the expansion of the United States as inevitable. Think, think. Well, rather than turn in a totally blank page I’ll just start writing what little I do remember...
Wow, is the time up already? I just finished the last answer! Thank you, God!
