You Again

The sixth period on this long term eighth grade English class has two in-person students. (Well, two in-person students in each cohort, but the whole cohort thing is another post.) Brice and Adam.

On Tuesday, Brice and Adam showed up together. As they likely did the week before. And they'll likely continue to do so. 

They explained. The two of them have the exact same schedule. Well, except for their math class. They each have a different math class. 

But the rest of their school day, they are together. 

Two eighth grade boys who have the whole day together? That is way too much time to plan mischief. 

(At least they're in the advanced class. That means they're less likely to be difficult in class.) 

The thing they were laughing about on this day, however, had to do with them meeting up with each other that morning at the discipline office. The discipline office is where the kiddos check out their computers. And both of them managed to break theirs that Tuesday. 

Brice's water bottle leaked, and he had doused his computer. He flooded his entire backpack. 

Adam... Well, Adam managed to smash his. How? Well, Brice told the story. Adam didn't offer details. So, I suspect Adam was at least partially at fault. 

Those two can't escape each other, it seems. I imagine this will be a great story for them in ten or fifteen years.

  3. Oh two teen boys running together all day can lead to NO GOOD. haha....I have done the water bottle thing. I have always carried a big purse and one day after lunch coming back into work from the car I put my water bottle in my purse, with my phone. I did not realize that my top of the bottle was not screwed in to well. Flood the purse and the phone. HOWEVER, rice does work well pulling the moisture from the phone.

    1. I have done the water bottle thing myself. I blogged about it at the time. Not fun.

  4. Ooh, a leaky water bottle. Never put water bottles anywhere near electronics. A leak will spontaneously manifest!

  5. Brice and Adam sound like spoilt children. Manners are never a waste of time nor ethics and speaking the truth. Unfortunately this leaves a putrid smell with messers interested in splashing prussic acid around, I am of course speaking metaphorically for mischief.

  6. One of my best friends in high school had his last name start the same as mine. :) Good times. And the teachers adored us both, I believe.

  7. At least they sound like they get on. If they weren't already, they'll be best buds by the end of the school year.
