Sleepwalking my way through life: "A good long while filled with silence and a numb ass."



"A good long while filled with silence and a numb ass."

It was the most boring day ever today.

Well, mostly.

I was in the first two periods today, double graphics. It wasn't bad. I spent the period drawing an old remote control from an old tv.

"So Joseph. You chosen your thematic presentation (Project) yet?"

"Yeah, it's this here." I say as I show him the remote.

"Jeez. This is a relic. Is this one of the first remote controls?" He asked jokingly.

"You're not far off it, sir."

He laughed and started to pry it open with his fingers, but it wouldn't budge. "Is this glued on or something?"

"Most likely. If I can't pull it apart then I'll just smash it with a hammer."

He recoiled from me, a look of horror upon his face. "Never!" He said. "I'll never let you destroy such a beautiful antique!"

I hoped to God he was kidding.

The bell signifying the end of break rang, and my friends dissapated around me and I found myself alone with my music and my writing pad. This wasn't a bad thing in itself, seeing as I have a story that I'm itching to write and haven't started yet. But I hadn't put pen to pad when Jason came along. He was alone as well and wanted to go to the Murray shops for food and me, being the nice guy that I try to be, went with him.

We met up with Mark, a guy with long blonde hair, and he decided to join us in our trek to the shops. Him and Jason spent the entire time discussing metal bands, so I spent most of my time in silence as I re-wrote the story in my head over and over again. It's getting pretty good if I don't say so myself. All I need to do is write it down.

We headed back up to school soon enough and hung about in our usual area for a good long while. A good long while filled with silence and a numb ass.

"Alright then?"

I looked up to see what looked like a third year talking to us. I knew better though. This girl was a sixth year who is a right pain in the ass. And since my ass was already smarting from the wooden bench I decided to ignore her.

"Is non of yous not gonnae answer?"

"Alright then." Jason finally said.

"Fine then. Hey do you straighten your hair?" She said to Mark. "Hey man! You straighten your hair or what?"

"No, it's natural."

"Lucky bastard." She said as she walked into the girls toilets. There was another silence after that, but that was soon broken by a very disturbing sound.

We heard her. We heard her. Everything was silent and we heard it from all the way outside the toilet. Loud and clear.

Needless to say we started giggling.

Then full laughter broke out when the toilet had trouble flushing. And we were styill laughing as she stepped out of the bathroom. She looked at us with a sneer on her face.

"What yis laughing at?"

We laughed even harder. She asked again and I composed myself enough to say "Jason here just told a great joke."

"Really? Then what was it?"

We laughed again.

I missed English that afernoon. I couldn't be bothered hanging around for it again, so I went home with Maddy and Laura. We had fun.

I spent the rest of the day texting Marie. And that, my friends, has been a lot of fun.

So until next time, I bid you farewell.
