THE ARCHIVES: Chapter 18

Computer Engineering

Class demographics:
fifteen males,
one female (me).
Ten white,
four Hispanic,
two black.
We also had one
deranged white male teacher
who yelled at us if we
made sparks
with cut computer wires.
When he was not in the room,
before class,
we all grouped outside
to watch Nick
hurl old keyboards
up at the roof.
Keys came clattering down,
showering over us.
I managed to grab the ESC key
and shove it into my pocket
before the teacher came back.
His face pale with rage, he
grabbed Nick’s hands and screamed,
“This isn’t a computer
destruction class!”
We just laughed.
