A New Wrinkle

 

     Moments stretch into unbearable lifetimes, as the droning orator turns history into an exercise for dealing with tedium.

My attention begins to wander, with discretion.

     Behind me, Sally’s Heaven Scent is washing over me like a Matador’s red cape.

     To my left, Billy has half his finger up his nose, in pursuit of some illusive booger.

     Managing to contain my chuckles for the time being, can’t help but notice that Jimmy has dropped his pencil three times and it always falls behind him and in front of where Debby sits in her mini-skirt.

     Couple others, are finished with their test now. They look around as well, noting a semblance of achievement, per the number of heads still down and fixated on accuracy.

     Oration drones on…

     Twenty minutes later, they let us leave, to suffer at the auditorium in attendance of another lecture on; ‘Life Before Mammals’.

     Just think of it. All they teach us is about the past. How is Robespierre and Rasputin going to help me live a fulfilled life?

     Keep your head down and pretend to fit in. Yeah, that’s the miracle cure.

     I figured going back to School at 70, with other retirees would be different from High School.

No difference in the sophomoric behavior, except the addition of a few new wrinkles.

 

THE END
