This week a student at our local high school did something that I think we all have, at some time, wanted to do. She went into the school office and picked up the public address handset and let loose.
Excuse the interruption but I have a brief announcement.
Yup, that’s how she started it. But from there it went downhill, fast. I hesitate to post the versions I have heard here. But it was something to the effect of calling out a girl who is now dating her ex-boyfriend and declaring a smack-down will occur later in the day. All the while utilizing incredibly colorful expletives and innuendo.
Realizing the consequences of her action, she closed with
Bye FHS. I won’t be seeing you for a while.
While I don’t condone this, I can’t help but feel that in some way, a lot of students were probably wishing they’d done that.
