The day was Friday, January 8, 2016. It was 6th period. School would be out in less than 22 minutes.
The fire alarm rang.
Then the unthinkable happened. Students didn’t want to leave. They rushed to the projector screen in the front of the class, attempting to get one last bit of information before they were forced to stand tormentingly in the 55-degree sunniness of a Southern Nevada winter afternoon.
“Can we just stay here and finish the assignment?” asked a mediocre student.
“This sucks!” shouted another kid just back from the Dean’s Office.
“I’m afraid we have to go or I’ll get fired,” I replied. They seemed OK with that, but we left anyway.
This really happened!
