School Story:

Had fun with Sister Alex in history class. She got mad at me for fooling around and told me to take over the class. She left the room and I sat at her desk and continued the class. I could see her thru the door window laughing. Only lasted about 5 minutes. Had to stay after school and clean her room. She left me alone again and I attempted to escape by going out the window and across the roof of the gym to a classroom on the other side. She came back as I was crossing the roof. Thought she was going to have a heart attack. Once back in the room we had a good laugh. Also remember throwing a naked Tom Spies out of the locker room into the hall. Funny to everyone but Tom. Luckily hall was vacant.
