A class

"And now children we will play the new game.
How do you want our school to look in the year 2020?
Yes, Alex"
Teacher, why 2020?"
"Alex don't ask silly questions. Sit down. 2020 because it's like the best vision 20:20"
"And what is 20:20"
"The best vision, I've told you. And Steve, where is your raised hand when you ask the question?"
"But the teacher!"
"No buts! Be quiet!. So where were we?"
"On the butts, teacher?"
"Ah Yes, That is NO!. What do you say Mary? It's forbidden word. Don't use it"
"But the teacher.."
"Be silent! Buts is for me only. OK. Let's continue. So, how do you want our class to look in the year 2020?"
"The teacher! The teacher!"
"Yes, Peter, tell us"
"The teacher, I need to pee"
"Can't you wait? We are in the middle of so interesting discussion."
"The teacher, the pee is escaping. And what is this 'discussion'?"
"Go to wc and be back quickly.
Children, the Discussion is when I ask and you answer."
"And if I ask and you answer?"
"This will be just silly questions, Michaela. I know you.
So, let us continue."
"The teacher, can we dance?"
"Why dance Mary? Do you think that we'll all dance in the year 2020?"
"No, teacher, I want to dance now."
"But we are discussing about the year 2020"
"But I want to dance!"
"And I want to play dolls"
"And I want to snipe. Got a new pistol from father. And he said that it's nice to snipe"
"Well children. Do whatever you want. We'll discuss tomorrow about the year 2020".

And the teacher went to the principle to tell him that her class is too young for such difficult tasks.
She'll let them be children for some years more. May be in 2020 they'll grow up.

One of those don't touch-me I am insane events of the everyday of 99% of teachers everywhere. When i was a school brat if we gave lip service to the teacher we got "it" at school and home, and it wasn't 20/20 but 100/100 all the way.

Maybe... but... some children never grow up... I wonder if I'll be alive in 2020... but I sure hope that things will be more kinder and more peaceful for these children by then.... cute write...and gives much to think about. hugs, lindalaw
