Frog Tails Day 6The fact that we weren't late is worthy of mention. Not a terribly interesting fact, but it made me happy that it wasn't just my opinion or wishful thinking. Most of my teachers weren't crazy about me anyway, so it was best to stay as far away from their bad sides as I was able.My ankle was starting to really bug me though, and the stairs that disliked me on a normal basis were having a field day. Currently, I was on my way to my last class before lunch, and if I tripped one more time, I was going to bellow some very nasty words and phrases. There was still another half flight of stairs to go, and then a thirty second walk to the door. More steps from the door to a desk. I bit back yet another curse and told myself that giving up swearing was good. Big brothers should be models of decorum.I squeezed myself out of the way of other people using the stairs and crouched with the pretense of tying my shoe. &
