Hi, my name is Joey, and I'm pretty wired. Well, at least that's what other people think. But to be honest, I think it sometimes too.
My mom left me when I was in kindergarten because she was chasing after my dad who ran off. She left me with my grandma while she was gone but she is back now. Well, that is after a lot of waiting, which is what I am doing in this scene.
Since I am so wired, I was having trouble focusing during class and was disrupting it. So that I could focus on something, she gave me some pencils to sharpen. I was doing a great job at sharpening them. So great that I finished early and decided to sharpen my finger.
I've made so many mistakes that my mom had to have a meeting with my school. They decided that I would stay home for one day so that paperwork could process then I would be sent to the special ed school.
The doctor at the special school sent me to the hospital to get some test done to make sure nothing else was wrong with me. I was perfectly fine other than the fact that I was wired. As a result of this, I went back to the special school and got new medication.
My behavior and mindset improved drastically, so I was sent back to my regular school where I said the pledge over the intercom on my first day back.
