The Song Of Silence

| Learning | March 6, 2015

(It is my sophomore year and I have a wonderfully eccentric English teacher. We’re supposed to be working quietly but something happens that causes everyone to start talking.)

Teacher: *singing to the tune of ‘Are you Sleeping, Brother John’* “I hear talking. I hear talking…”

Half The Class: *singing in response* “Yes, you do… Yes, you do.”

Teacher: *laughs* “Be quiet and work now… Be quiet and work now…”

Whole Class: “How ’bout you? How ’bout you?”

(It was the only time where my life, for one brief moment, it became a musical.)
