6th period. Adam walked in and claimed a dry erase marker. Cleared a spot on the white board and started to write up an apology. "I'm so sorry, Sarah..."
As he was doing this, he explained. Sarah had not spoken to him all day. And he had no idea why. So, he had spent the entire day apologizing to her, to no avail.
In the midst of this, Sarah walked in. Saw what Adam was doing. And it made her madder.
Adam left. (He wasn't enrolled in this government class.)

"Get your hands off me!" Followed by a smack on the arm.
It was the end of period 5. The students were filing out. And Samantha just lit into Jacob.
Jacob acted perplexed. He told anyone who would listen (including me) that he had done nothing wrong. He had bumped into Samantha. Shoved by someone behind him. He then apologized for bumping into her. And that's when she let him have it.
Now, normally I would believe Jacob. But Jacob was of the crew who had spent the period chillin' in the back of the classroom, acting as if he had nothing to do but hang with his guys. And talk. And laugh. (They were supposed to be watching the movie and answering questions that went along with it.)
So, I have a feeling that there was a bit more to that interaction than what Jacob says.

The next day Sarah and Adam walked into 6th period arm in arm. All was forgiven?
"Adam, why was she mad at you?"
Adam still had no idea. She wouldn't tell him. She said as much...
"Will you at least tell me?" I asked.
I admit, I was curious.
She explained that Adam wanted to go to prom in a muscle car, and she didn't think that was appropriate. But upon further consideration, she realized she wasn't letting him make any prom decisions, so she'd let him have that one.
Did you spend weeks planning your prom experience? Did you go to your prom? Would you have asked Sarah for all the details, too?
