Tales From the Fourth Grade

Major drama at the elementary school today - some boys were kicking a soccer ball in the gym (after they had been told specifically not to kick the ball hard, just to pass it) and it flew across the gym and hit the P.E. teacher in the face and broke her glasses.


The P.E. teacher (a really nice woman) apparently got pretty pissed, and may have done some generalized yelling. Katie thinks she may have seen her cry a little as well, but that's unsubstantiated, and Katie is given to hyperbole. I don't know where she gets it from.

There was a group of four or five boys who were playing with the soccer ball, and none of them would confess to the transgression, nor did anyone admit to seeing the culprit. The teacher gave them the whole "I want a name on my desk by 9 a.m. or else you're all getting in trouble!" spiel, so we'll see what happens tomorrow.

It all reads like an episode of The Brady Bunch, doesn't it?

Sean said for one of the boys to narc would be breaking the Boy Honor Code. The first rule of Gym Class? Don't talk about Gym Class. 

I have a lot to learn about boys.
