Transcript

  • 1. Homework… The dog ate it. I looked at the wrong week. It got totally ruined When my coke bottle leaked.
  • 2. It’s done – in my old book. I've got my new book today. I've still got detention?! That's shocking! No way!
  • 3. It’s on the dining room table. Sitting there. Phone my Mam! I'm not lying Sir! It’s the truth – not a scam!
  • 4. I wanted to do it. But my Mam said I had To do the food shopping With my sister and dad.
  • 5. We had relatives round. They left just this morning. They took over my room With no signs or no warning.
  • 6. I didn't have a sheet, Sir. Danny had mine. If you give me another I'll do it – it’s fine.
  • 7. The computer went crazy. The printer is bust. I wasn't half mad, Sir. I swore and I cussed.
  • 8. But just occasionally One student might say “ I'm sorry Sir. I haven't got it today. There is no excuse. I just plain forgot.” As they squirm and they worry looking flustered … and hot.
  • 9. An honest response. A nice pleasant shock. But they've still got detention. “ My room, one o' clock.” M F Cowan, 2008.
