IJ: mami mami mami yes i know I'm in trouble i didn't choose the right .. dang mom choosing the right isn't that much fun.. The teacher said i was loud in class so was .... and...., but i was the only one that got introuble and she sid for recess to stay in with my head on the desk.. and i dint litsen , so i went to play..

MAMI : IJ you disobeyed your teacher ...Please go to your room and think about what kind of consequence you should have..

I don't know what to say. The story brings to mind how I was in a class, maybe 1978... maybe earlier,and two of us were in a classroom, unattended.

(violation of California Law)

I was given a yelloiw slip, and I was left shocked. I knew that I was to get a blue slip (major violation) and was botrhered at the failure to follow protocol.

Still, I remember sitting for hours writing 500 words on why what I did was wrong...

Gracias. This wassa wonderful read.
