I was reading today, and came across this question…

“What’s the craziest thing that ever happened to you in school?”

I am an accident waiting to happen, so I have a million. Like the time I wore a cream suit to speech class on the morning of my presentation, only to slip on a mud puddle inside the entrance doors and do a faceplant. My teacher let me go home to change.

Or the time I dumped my lunch tray, retainer and all, in the trash…then spent my recess looking for it.

And my personal favorite, the time I couldn’t get my locker open. It would open at the bottom, but got jammed at the top. Finally, a guy offered to give it a huge tug. Problem was, I didn’t clear the way, and the locker opened, knocking me in the forehead. Down I went. My “friend” looked at me and said, “You’re bleeding.”

Dad rushed to the school and took me to the hospital. Before stitching me up, they asked how it happened. Imagine my embarrassment when I had to say,

“I got hit in the head by a locker.”

Hey, it happens.
