John wished he had his scooter. Play school was for girls.

"Save me, save me!" cried Yellow Plushy.

A gun would have been beneficial too.

Hey, Jim, guess what? Here's what: you might want to head back to Grandma's Goulash and re-link with Linky. When I click on your name there, the link directs me right back to GG's Succintly Yours page instead of your blog. I dunno. Maybe the glitch is coming from my end? Better doubleback, just to be sure, eh? Thanks!)
Now, on to your SY entry: Deep, man, seriously deep! Talk about your heavy duty poetry! As I was reading your microfiction, I suddenly found myself hearing a bongo beat playing in the background and a beatnikky Bill reciting it to me and a bunch of other coffee-housey coffeeheads sipping their brew! Yes, that would be YOU (<--cLiCkY-cLiCkY!) sporting the beret!
He wants to leave school, huh? He needs more interesting assignments.
The girls start in on the boys very quickly don't they? Then it's a lifelong process for many.

Have a terrific day Jim. :)
John sounds like my brother at that age! School is geared more toward a girl's style of learning than a boy's, in my opinion.
Felt like I was right there. I could almost hear Yellow Plushie's silent scream. They're ready for the 3pm dismissal bell for sure.
Very good Jim - that made me smile!
Okay, I'm seriously prejudiced by my inability to imagine a gun as beneficial in a children's learning situation.
However, I'm ready to admit you and a small boy might disagree with me.

Poor John! It sounds like he's ready to go to extremes.
Hi Jim ~~ Poor John misses his scooter. Thanks for your comments and I am glad that you enjoyed the
jokes. And I am missing Bec after her being here a week. She has rung me twice since she got home. Not sure
when my son Geoff and his wife Jo are
coming next. My daughter Kate and two girls are coming at the end of the month. Glad you got some rain.
WE had a few showers today also.
Take care my friend, Regards, Merle.
My husband would feel the same after a day of "girl" stuff-LOL!
