Moments with Joey – New Years and Punishment

Pin It
SCENE 1, INTERIOR. NOON, CLASSROOM. RECESS. Only a few students remain in the classroom finishing up assignments. One boy approaches the teacher who is working on the day’s Social Studies assignment.

JOEY: Mr. Z, do you know who’s going to be in your class next year?

TEACHER: Now, just why in the world would that matter to you?

[Pause].

JOEY: I just does. [Pause]. So, do you know who’s going to be in your class?

TEACHER: Yep, and I’m really excited to have you again.

[The boy’s eyes grow wide for a second].

OTHER STUDENTS: Moted! Ooooooo. You got that, Joey!

JOEY: I get to be in your class again? That would be fun!

[The teacher is a bit surprised].

TEACHER: Really?

[Joey nods and grins].

JOEY: Yeah, I like to be punished.

Fade to black.

You'll miss that glutton for punishment- so will we. Here's to hoping you get an extra special Joey to "torture" next year.

Ha! So being with you is a punishment. That's like when my kids ask to go to my colleague's room for a time out when they haven't done anything wrong. They just want to go see her.
