Principal Taylor used his intercom to ask Pete to come to his office right away, however, Pete was in the gym playing basketball with his class and the principal was having a hard time speaking over the noise of the game.

“Let me see if I can get my assistant to go and get Pete.”

“Do you want me to stay or would you prefer to speak with my son alone?”

“I’d prefer you to stay if you don’t mind.”

Miss Ashford, principal Taylor’s assistant spoke with the coach and he called Pete over to go to the office.

Pete was curious to find out what and why the principal wanted to see him and couldn’t for the life of him figure it out as he hadn’t done anything wrong and had nothing to worry about.

Jane sat and stared in disbelief at the baggie that principal Taylor was holding up.

“I can’t believe that this is pot let alone pot that belongs to my son, he’s always saying that the kids he hangs around with would never ever smoke weed and if by chance it is his, which I doubt, why on Earth would he have it in his locker.”

“Pete has always been such a good student that obeys all the rules, and that is why I wanted to talk with you first to see if we can get this all sorted out. I am required to report this to the authorities but that can wait for a bit.”

“Have you talked to my son yet to hear what he has to say?”

“No, I haven’t yet as I feel safe to say that I believe there is more to this than we know.”

Jane got a call from her son’s school principal wanting her to come to his office ASAP regarding something of importance that involved her son Pete.

Oh God, what has he done now was all that was going through Jane’s head as she quickly brushed her hair and put on a bit of lipstick before heading over there.

“Come right in Mrs. Taylor and please have a seat,” instructed the principal.

Before Jane could say a word, he started by saying, “Every once in a while as I’m sure you’re aware, we do random locker checks, and today we checked Pete’s locker and let me tell you I was not happy about what was found. I could have called the police but I’m not so sure that what was found belongs to him and that is why I’ve called you in.”

Reaching down and unlocking one of his desk drawers Mr. Renfrew pulled out what appeared to be pot and said, “This is what is in question, but hasn’t been tested yet.”

It’s Just a Routine – Six Sentence Story

grocery list

I had my list of the items I needed to get at the bakery/deli for dinner along with some empty cans to take back to the beer store, a prescription that needed filling, and Al added a six-pack of Pepsi to the list and we needed tomatoes.

There wasn’t the usual traffic that I was used to seeing at 4pm and each place I went to I walked in got what I needed and was surprised to see that there weren’t any people in the stores which made me think that perhaps people were actually taking heed and staying home because of the Coronavirus. Either way, I was happy that there weren’t a lot of people around.

On a normal day in Orillia, Ontario making all these stops would have taken me at least an hour perhaps longer. Whenever I have more than one stop to make I follow a routine; I plan out my route, I always have a list (I’m old and forgetful, I need a list) and I drive keeping in mind the best way to go to save on gas.

When I arrived home my husband Al couldn’t believe how fast I got everything done until I explained to him how deserted all the places were.

Allegations made all pointed to her

Was only used as an instrument

 

If found guilty of committing this crime

She was looking at doing … hard time

The Plant – Six Sentence Story

Joe was off to the plant.

He moved so fast you’d think there were ants in his pants.

When he got there the parking lot was bare.

He realized it was Sunday and he did swear.

He could have slept in, then he grinned, and off he drove fast as the wind.

When he got home, he went back to bed and slept all day … like the dead.

Sitting proudly upon a mound

I sat beside him on the ground

The Renovation Part 2 – Six Sentence Story

Part 1 can be read here.

After realizing that I really could do this reno by myself I decided that I also wanted to put a bathroom in on the main floor.

For this, I would need to draw up some plans. I knew exactly where the new bathroom, a powder room to be precise, would go.

Getting out my trusty tape measure I wrote down all the dimensions and later I’d draw them to scale on a graph pad.

Asking my brother in law the plumber to give me a quote and timeframe would be beneficial. I’d mention to him that a little family discount is always appreciated.
