Concentrate

“Click, click, click, click!”

“Stop, Bobby.”

“Click, click, click, click!”

“Stop it!”

“Click, click, click!”

“STOP!”

“Click, cli—”

“SHUT UP!!!”

“Maggie, did you just say that?”

“Yeah, but Bo—”

“No buts. Just go into the hall.”

Aaaggghhh! Now what? I thought

“Haha hee ha hee haha hee!” yelled Bobby.

“Uggghhh,” I murmured.

“Come over here, Maggie,” said the teacher as we walked into the hallway. “Why did you yell ‘shut up’ in class?”

“Because Bobby wouldn’t stop making noises.”

“Well, next time you should ignore him.”

“But he—”

“NO BUTS! If you yell in class again you will have to be suspended for two whole days!”

“But he wou—”

“I said NO BUTS!”

“But he wa—”

“I SAID NO BUTS!”

But everybody has a butt, I thought. Then I giggled a bit.

“Maggie, do you think this is funny?”

“No,” I answered.

“Then why were you laughing?” asked the teacher.

“Because I was thinking of something funny.”

“What were you thinking about?”

“Ummmmm…” I said, “I forgot.”

“Are you sure?”

“Yep,” I said, sounding very worried.

“Well, okay then,” she said. “Back into the classroom.”

I went to open the door to the classroom feeling unjustly treated. When I sat down at my desk I realized there was a worksheet waiting to be accomplished by me. I sat down. Bobby started cracking up, and I started blushing.

“Kids, time to line up.”

“Do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do,” I heard.

Then I started concentrating on something. I don’t know what, though. Suddenly, I didn’t hear anything. What was going on? I turned to look behind me, and Bobby seemed to be talking, just with no noise. Wait, now I hear it! But instead of making clicks or singing some song everyone hates, he was quietly saying, “Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah!”

My problem was solved! All I had to do was concentrate and make it sound like he was just saying, “Blah, blah, blah.” Whew! I thought. For a second there, I thought I was starting to become deaf or something. I felt relieved.
