Passing Notes in Class

I was watching The Wonder Years and there was a scene with Kevin Arnold passing notes in class. There’s something special about passing notes. You jot something down on piece of paper and pass it over to a friend when the teacher’s back is turned. They write something back while you anxiously await their response. They slyly return it when the teacher’s not looking. It was like texting before there was texting. Hell, it was better than texting. It was more personal, immediate, and thrilling because you could get in trouble for it. And you could save a really good note as a memento or trophy. I don’t know if kids pass notes in class anymore. I’m sure some do, but they probably use their smartphones for the majority of their illegal classroom socializations.

Hollywood Classroom Cliché

Have you ever noticed the Hollywood classroom cliché? The bell rings, the students enter the classroom, sit in their seats, the teacher comes in a second later, writes something on the board and starts their lecture (which is always relevant to the plot), one or two students make comments, the bell rings, and the teacher shouts out the homework assignment as the students scramble out the door. The class only lasted five minutes, and nobody seemed to notice or care. What kind of school are these kids going to? And how do I enroll? I would love to go to a school where the lesson is always important, classes are only a few minutes long, and the teacher knows all the students by name.

The Penis Game

If you went to public school and don’t know what the penis game is, you have failed in your education. The premise is simple. One player starts the game by quietly saying “Penis.” Then the next player says “Penis” a little louder. The next player says “Penis” even louder. The volume increases as the game goes on until they start screaming it at the top of their lungs. The whole point of the game is to disrupt the class and to piss off the teacher. Yes, it’s immature and imbecile, but it’s also fun as hell. The best way to win is to be fearless. Shout it loud and shout it proud. You want to bellow it out. Be theatrical. Really get into it. Only make sure you have someone to play against or else people will think you’re crazy.
