I Watch Without Comment
I watch the child peel a banana one small bit of peel at a time
Rule is one trip to the garbage can; but I am in charge now.
Teacher has left the room.
He travels back and forth to the waste can throwing one bit in at a time.
Eighteen trips; I say nothing.
Being one of those “cannot sit still” kids myself.
