Well Hawk Me!

| Chicago, IL, USA | Learning | May 24, 2017

(My school’s team is the Red Hawks, and we’re having a pep rally to get everyone psyched up for the game that night. The principal is at the mic, talking about what a great team we have and how excited he is for this season. The guy a few rows behind me is getting really into it, and I freeze as I hear:)

Guy: “F*** yeah!”

(Everyone freezes. The principal, to his credit…)

Principal: “That is exactly what I’m talking about. Hawk yeah! HAWK yeah! I want that kind of school spirit at the game tonight!”

(Everyone exhales. At the time, I was relieved that the principal had misheard, but now I wonder if he knew, and just decided to give the guy a pass!)
