Hi! I’m Chuckie. Wanna Play??!!

The Setting:


Last three weeks of school. Students have finished reading the The Crucible and are working in groups to produce a skit for the class.


It is Day Two and the task sheet requires the group members to decide on interpretation, costumes, props, and set layout.


Ms. Psuedo is sitting at her desk, going through the task sheets from the previous class while listening in on the tables and their conversations.


The Action


Table Three erupts into a cacophony of chaos. Athletic male student pushes his chair back, stands up, and firmly makes his unequivocal statement.


I’m not bringing no Chuckie doll to class. NO WAY!!


He shivers.


Female surfer/lifeguard student is grinning ear to ear.


I said I’d bring him. A Chuckie doll for the poppet. It’s an awesome idea.


NO WAY!!! No one is bringing a Chuckie doll.


Assistant teacher goes to the table and asks if she can be of assistance. Do the students need help working things out?


Freaked out, bigger than a house, male student blathers on about butcher knife wielding creepy dolls blah blah blah.


Meanwhile female student catches Ms. Pseudo’s eye and sees the twinkle. Oops Ms. Pseudo.


Male student huffs and puffs and starts to settle back into seat.


Female surfer/lifeguard student eyes Ms. Pseudo and the rest of the kids at the table. She waits until he is seated. Then she turns to the boy with a creepy shit eating grin and shrills,


HI!! I’m Chuckie!! Wanna play??!!

I love my job.

As someone who has always been a bit freaked out by dolls I can sympathise (a little). That lifeguard student sounds like a genius.

I could never be a teacher. I would have so much fun playing into something like this that no work would ever get done!
You're awesome because I know exactly what you were thinking!

Kathy said...

I gave you a couple of awards to add to your list, so come by and pick them up when you get a chance.

That is a scary doll and face. I was scared to stop by and glad I did. What a funny story.

Gaston Studio said...

Love that girl!

Actually, I'd play with Chuckie today, if he'd let me. I'm having 'abortions' all over the place according to Internet Explorer and can't access most people's blogs. No one will let me play today!

I'm buying a new damn computer tomorrow!

I've gotta be honest--I'm with freaked out, bigger than a house male student. Chuckie freaks me out! If students were talking about bringing in a Chuckie doll for a presentation in my class, I think I'd have to nix that idea.

I have to admit, Chuckie freaks me out too.

Still...it was funny.

Mrsbear said...

That was great. I heart female surfer/lifeguard student. My kids live in fear of Chuckie and that's just from seeing him on random previews or on the box at the video store. If I were a different kind of mom I might use that to my advantage, unfortunately it's me that has to deal with the predawn nightmares and I, for one, value my sleep. ;)

Beth said...

I love that student! And I love that you would let her prank that boy.

Midlife Jobhunter said...

I like that they noticed you. Amazing what we observe in our kids when we're silent. Great fodder for stories, also.

Captain Dumbass said...

I like lifeguard girl.
