Moments with Joey – The Liking Challenge

Pin It
SCENE 1, INTERIOR. AFTERNOON, CLASSROOM. The class is gone for the day; the teacher is starting to read the students’ journal entries. He notices a boy in his class approaching him out of the corner of his eye.

JOEY: Mr. Z?

TEACHER: [Suddenly looking up]. Make me like you...

JOEY: [Mock exasperation]. I’ve been trying to do that all year…

TEACHER: Well, try harder.

JOEY: [Thinking]. I could go home.

TEACHER: Now THAT just might work.

[The teacher winks as the boy giggles and walks away].

Fade to black.

I don't think Joey has to try too hard to make Mr. Z like him. I'm working ESY now. I just wrote a long letter to a former colleague about our own little "Joey" that we had a few years back. Some days can be frustrating.

Ditto to Rachel's comment, minus the not-so-nice "liar, liar" part. ;)

Ah yes. With my Joeys, if they are late in the morning, there is a glimmer of hope in my heart that I might have a Joey vacation day.
