Run Away!




     Meckley's classroom appeared dark and deserted, but conveniently open.  Knowing he feared snakes , a rubber replica seemed a hilariously appropriate calling card.  Giggling, we quickly embellished a scrap worksheet with smiley faces and initials.  Bells pealing, we panicked, and fled upstairs.

    1. thewizardsword.com, actually my daughter inspired this little story. LOL She has more guts than I ever had to actually pull off a stunt like this. Fortunately the teacher thought it was a great prank and found it hilarious. He is one cool teacher and it is no wonder why his students love him. Thank you for stopping by and for your sweet comments! ♥

  23. Haha! This prank seems harmless enough. I heard of much worse when I was in school. No wonder I never wanted to be a teacher!

  24. Hahahaha! Makes me think of the pranks we pulled in school.. I think the worst one - in hindsight - was when someone - NOT ME - set the garbage can on fire right next to the teacher's desk! No kidding.. Which of course meant a fire drill ensued and the whole school had to empty out.. Crazy.. - I love your writing Kathy.
