FORGOTTEN, BY RYIA
In Mrs Kavalski’s literacy test, an older student suddenly appeared next to me. Not just any “older student”. It was my brother.
He peered at my sheet whispering quietly:
‘If you can’t think of a word, say, “I’ve forgotten the English word for it.
Then people will think you’re bilingual instead of AN IDIOT!” ‘
He slapped my back with such force that it made a sound, so loud the whole class turned their heads.
My brother had disappeared leaving a note covering his absence, which read…
“I forgot how to write concise statements – it’s a real pithy.”
Ugh! Joke Tuesday.
