I had date with Mrs. DePaolo. i was givin' her tongue
You're a sick man, skeezie.
Shut up !
Yeah,yeah. So what happened,anyways?
You're always serious, Addie.Seriously
I am not.
Can we be serious ?
Not the civil war, dummy. The Vietnam war.Right?
I think i knew that. I was making a joke.
For the North or the South ?
Okay,let's see. Mr.Kiley told me i was within my rights not to say the pledge, but that he personally had a hard time with my position because he fought for this country in an unpopular war.
Ahem.Anyways,he said that the pledge means a lot to some people and other people don't appreciate all that this country is and how great a democratic nation we are and blah-blah-blah. But when i tried to argue the point about our not being such a democratic nation as he contends we are, well, he wasn't very interested in hearing that. All of a sudden, he had an important meeting he just to go to and he was, like, whisking me out the door, as if i'd let off a stink bomb in his office and he was going to have have it fumigated. Anyway, he told me he would inform Ms. Wyman that while i did not have to say the pledge, I should stand up out of respect for my fellow classmates.
Are you going to?
I guess. I mean, what I'm really objecting to are the words, not standing or sitting. Although I can't say i like being toldI have to stand up. I mean, I am not robot .
You go, girl.
The student council elections are going to be in three weeks, so we have to get going on this right away.
So about the elections.
If the service gets much slower, I swear i'm gonna take a job here myself, just so i can get something to eat. Who's workin' today?...
