On Wednesday, at lunch, Ravi goes up to where Dillion and his friends are sitting and settles down next to them. Ravi thought that Dillion wanted to be his friend even though Dillion is actually a mean person. At the other table, Joe is surprised that Ravi sat next to him since he knows Dillion is not a good person. Joe thinks Ravi had lost his mind after Dillion threw a ball at him, "accidentally".
Then, Dillion told Ravi to try his American chili but he didn't tell him it has meat in it. When Ravi tastes the chili he thinks it tastes horrible and coughed and spit the chili out onto the table! Dillion and his friends laugh a lot at Ravi.
Next, Ravi didn't know that Dillion and his friends were making fun of him and thought they were joking around with him. So, Ravi waited for them to stop laughing. When they did stop, Ravi opened his tiffin box and dipped his spoon into his food and held it out for Dillion to try. Dillion slapped the spoon out of his hand and called him "Curry head".
Curryhead! You've been stinking up the place ever since you got here!
Ravi couldn't believe that Dillion thought he stunk and that he was so mean. He had assumed Dillion wanted to be his friend but Ravi finally realized, Dillion wanted to be a bully to him. So, he hurriedly ran out of the cafeteria with his belongings. Ravi wanted to punch Dillion, insult his mother and do everything bad to him. Instead, he ran away, still hearing Dillion laughing his head off.
HAHAHAHAHA!!! COME BACK, CURRY HEAD! HAHAHAHA!!!
When Joe saw Ravi running out of the cafeteria, he felt bad and sorry for him. Joe felt guilty that Ravi had to go through what he had just gone through. He thought that he could have told Ravi not to sit at the table and stop him from getting a mean nickname from Dillion. He knows Ravi thinks that he is dumb. Also, Joe knows that Ravi thinks that he tripped him.
Come back, Curry Head!
Ravi ran to the bathroom. He washed his face and rinsed his mouth. When Ravi looked into the mirror he couldn't recognize himself since he had never been so humiliated. Ravi got into one of the stalls, pulled down the toilet seat and sat down.
He held his tiffin box tightly to his chest and thought about his old school, Vidya Mandir. Ravi teased a boy named Ramaswami there but now HE was the Ramaswami at Albert Einstein Elementary School. Ravi felt like a loser and realizes he is getting a taste of his own medicine.
