Weighted Down By The Hole You Dug

| Learning | April 19, 2015

(I stay after school for a rehearsal for a private ensemble for which you have to audition. My chorus teacher started and works with the ensemble. I am sarcastic with her a lot, and today she has asked me and a friend to carry something for her to stand on during the concert so that the whole choir can see her.)

Teacher: “It’s heavier than you think. ”

Me: “How heavy can it be?”

(I try to pick it up unsuccessfully.)

Me: “Oh…”

Teacher: “See? I didn’t realize it at first, but it does need to support my weight.”

Me: “Yeah, that would make sense. It needs to be heavy to support you.”

Teacher: “What are you trying to say?”

Me: *flustered* “I’m just saying it needs to be heavy so that it can support your weight.”

Teacher: “…”

Me: “I will never win in this conversation, will I?”
