An 'E' ;-)
Wednesday night brought a tear to my eye ;-(
One of my pupils finished his English lessons with me. One of the nicest lads I've ever had the pleasure of knowing and working alongside. What fun we've had during the last six years!
Anyway, he brought me chocolates and then he sat down and wrote something for me to remember him by (all tongue in cheek,I hasten to add!):
Mother, one day, decided to take me to extra English lessons!
We spent a bloomin' fortune on it and do you know what? I got an 'E'! An 'E'!!
I was FUMING!
I spent six years going to that wretched place! Six years of wasting my Wednesday evenings! I could've done something useful,like um...well...golf...working...chatting to my mates...(or even knitting!) like any normal teen would do.
I said, 'Mum,it's not doing me any good!'
But she always argued,'Well, it is, because you can read now!'
Well, whoopee do for me! What does she think TV is for? (silly woman!)
This Sally Hall (that was her name) always urged me not to use 'said'! Well, 'said, said, said, SAID..there, stuff that...an E!!!
'Daniel, Daniel,' shrieked mum.
'What?! I shouted back.
'Something's come in the post for you.'
'Cool! Something in the post, I wonder what that could be?!'
The letter read:
'We regret to inform you that there has been a mix up in your English grade...'
'Oh great', I suppose I've failed!
I got...I got an.... A*.... UNBELIEVABLE...An A star!'
Lucky I went to those English lessons !!! ;-)
As you can see,the chocolates represent exactly what he really thought of my lessons ;-)
But we'll have to wait until August,to see his results in English Language and English Literature. In the meantime,all the best Daniel.It's been a pleasure. Wednesday evenings just won't be the same!
(And,because I know you will be reading this... if you get any 'E's, I'll throttle you. Sal;-)
