My cat had a wee problem, that required a hasty visit to the veterinary doctor this morning. Hopefully the medication will help him go…
Anyway, reminded me of another life, a long time ago, when I was a teacher and I had one particular student who would do anything to get out of class, I reckon.
When You Gotta Go
He stood up and wandered to the door.
‘Get back to your seat!’ I snapped.
‘Gotta go to the toilet, Miss.’
‘No, you don’t.’ I pointed at his desk. ‘Sit down!’
This version of Denis the Menace crossed his legs and grinned. ‘Yes, I do.’
‘You can wait.’
‘Please, Miss,’ his voice mocking, ‘I have to go.’
Sniggers rippled throughout the classroom.
I stood, pointing like a fool at his chair. Afternoon sun streamed through the dusty windows, ripening adolescent body odour.
He walked past me.
I growled, ‘Get back here!’
‘When you gotta go, you gotta go,’ he replied.
