Something Unexpected – A Personal Memory
Life is full of unexpected surprises. The routine of the following lesson after lesson can be very tiring. Recess time always seems so far away. The bell rings. One teacher leaves, another appears. What we need is a break from the monotony. The day something unexpected happened.
There are many opportunities when one can secretly wish for something exciting to happen – something out of the ordinary. The real surprise is when the wish unexpectedly comes true. One morning, we were a lesson into the routine when I felt that it was going to be just another day of endless studying. After what seemed a long time the bell rang for the second period. The Mathematics teacher left. I never believed that something like this could ever happen to me; such a thing that would make me stop and look back at the events in awe.
The short break between the going of one teacher and the coming of the next was when we had the opportunity to talk and have some fun. It usually lasted a minute or two, sometimes more. There are lots of ways that you can help yourself to stay positive in a difficult situation
This time no teacher appeared even after five minutes. We were having a great time. Ten minutes — (Teacher name) still did not appear. Our monitor went out in search of her. A few minutes later, he returned to announce that Mrs. Singham was absent. We cheered. This was unexpected, but it was welcome.
So for forty minutes we literally fooled around. The monitor could do nothing. What a good time we had. The bell rang again. Forty minutes of fun seemed so short, but it was great while it lasted.
Again no teacher appeared. It was another case of an absent teacher. We cheered even louder because it was , a double-period which meant we were free until recess. As soon as she finishes up with the lady, he starts to think about the three girls again and starts watching them as they go through the grocery store.
Altogether we had one hundred and twenty minutes — two hours, of no lesson. It was unexpected of course and I have to say I enjoyed it very much. I would not mind having more of this unexpected thing.
