On some days I am lucky to have just a few classes during the day, on others, I have back to back from 9am till 5. On those very hectic days, I just want the classes to get by quickly so I can go and have proper food and rest. Alas, you can only wish sometimes.
And the lecture is about ("someone hit me now 'cause it's easier than the torment I'm about to deal with now" my thoughts) .. It is Nutrition!
"Ok that's it, it's going to be a long one today"
One sentence. Second sentence.
One hand raised. Two and counting.
Phew! I know I know!
"At least, let the lecture start."
"Let's see the hands that are up"
Harry Potter check
"What's sup with Mr Secretary General today?"
"He needs to do something so the list can be complete."
"Oh there we go."
"Mr Secretary General check"
"And Mr Secretary General again"
You see, Mr Secretary General is a legend. Once he debuts himself, he takes over.
A simple single question is a huge slap on his person, he's gotta make it a sequel.
"Ok the questions are getting too simple."
Let's have Harry Potter surf the web for a bit, so he can give us that very 'intellectual' question.
And there he goes
"Article by *quotes author*" Harry Potter
" journal *quotes journal* says and bla bla bla bla" my head decodes.
"Oh dude please, not today. I'm not in the mood"
Yea your guess is right, after quoting all the margins that nobody really cares about, it's really some dude 'check your head did you think this up from your anus?' Kinda ish.
"How do people come up with these time wasting stuff? God help me!"
"Why is anyone listening?"
"Oh poor teacher. Must be hard to be a teacher."
"How do you tell this kind of a student"
"Dude you're blabbing. If you continue like this, you're going to fail"
Now, Harry Pottter and Newscaster have succeeded in pushing it in the very touchy direction.
"Wouldn't want to be you right now, dear teacher."
I try to zone off for a few minutess to while away time.
The drama just won't let my zoning off work effectively.
Very touchy topic. 'Under nutrition in Africa'
"You've set the Nigerians on fire"
"Now, look for an extinguisher 'cause they've taken over."
Now it sounds like 'the moderator, co- debaters, panel of judges...' Kinda thing
Only that the intro part is missing.
I look at the time and pray silently,
"Dear lord, Can you give this teacher the ability to stop this class when it's time?
The clock seems to be moving slowly
More time for more Nigerians blazing up. You'd pray this was actually the law makers in the country they were standing up to. Alas, it's just a teacher in school.
"This class may never end today. We just have to stop."
"Ok last one." the teacher says
Newscaster is back!
"How can asking a simple question sound like a speech?"
"Now that was one long question!"
I survived it guys, I did :)
Have a lovely weekend ahead
