 I was in 8th grade at the time and a friend had bet me Ten dollars that I wouldn't pinch our very attractive English teacher's butt. Well back in the day ten dollars was a lot of money, so I went for it. (lol) I never liked school growing up and English by far was the subject I hated the most. Who would of ever thought that one day I would be writing poetry and have a published book. I don't know how or why I went from getting a D to getting a B after that move, but it was worth the three day suspension and the two weeks of grounding my parents gave me.

My teacher, she once gave me a C The next cycle...she gave me a D I was young with no class When I pinched her fine … But that cycle...she gave me a B

G'day Charles … she didn't tell you she'd give you ten minutes to stop that. I trust you spent the ten dollars wisely - thank you Charles - Lindsay

I'm surprised I graduated too, Kurt (lol). That must have been fun to watch the expression on the waitresses face (lol). That would be a shocker to see it POTD. Have a nice weekend :)

Oh I love this poem Charles - the things we used to get up to at school - I was a boarder for the last two years of high school at a convent run by nuns. I was dared by my friends to use a coin to open the vacant/engaged lock when the nun looking after our floor, was in the shower - I did, and was gated for the rest of the term - could not go to family and friends for visits for 6 weeks! Hugs, Jennifer.
