At Recess You Take The Nosebleed Seats

, , , , | Friendly | July 25, 2018

(I’m having recess with friends. Our school has students ranging from 13 to 18 in age, since it’s a combined middle and high school — or the closest Finnish equivalent. I’m a 16-year-old girl with friends mostly my age, but a 13-year-old boy we’ve met through a hobby has started tagging along. He’s a sweet kid, but his energy levels are super high and he can be socially awkward, so we sometimes have to tell him off and ask him to calm down.)

Me: “You really shouldn’t do that.”

(Our young friend takes my hand by the wrist and starts slapping himself in the face with it lightly, as mock-punishment. He gets a few slaps in before my nose suddenly starts bleeding.)

Another Friend: “Oh, [My Name], you’ve got this all wrong! The one being hit in the face should be the one who bleeds!”
