THE ARCHIVES: Chapter 298

Gummy Worms

The rest of the day
passed in a blur.
I focused hard on geometry,
determined to pass
the class.
I carried my book,
notebook, calculator,
and sheet of formulas
onto the bus
and tried to concentrate.
I should have known
that would be impossible.
Two boys were flinging
gummy worms around.
They stuck to the windows,
the ceiling,
the emergency exit,
even the pages of my textbook.
One of the guys leaned over my seat,
picked the gummy worm off my book
and ate it.
“Sorry,” he mumbled
through a mouthful of sugar.
I started laughing
and lost concentration.
