My last class of the dia was english with Mrs. Donatello.
Mrs. Donatello: Ok, today we are going to read Romeo & Juliet por William Shakespeare. And we all know what he was famous for, right?
Rafe: (making the most boring stories in all of Equestria)
Mrs. Donatello: This story is a little advanced, but I think you're up for it.
Allison: I'll help with handing out the scripts.
Mrs. Donatello: Ok, thank you. Now let's go over the parts you'll be reading. Rafe, I think you'll make an excellent Paris.
Rafe: Why do I have to read a fillie's part?
Mrs. Donatello: Paris is a stallion. He's one of Lord Capulet's best men.
Rafe: He probably still wears tights.
Unfortunately no one heard that
Mrs. Donatello: Listen to the language as we read along. Notice how every line has ten syllables. Notice the subtle rhyming. That's not easy to do. No one has ever written like Shakespeare.
Rafe: No one?
Then, that's where I got my idea to get 30,000 points. I didn't have a single line until page 12. This was good, and gave me enough time to think. Ten syllables per line? Check. Rhyming? Check.
Mrs. Donatello: Act 1, scene 2. Lord Capulet, and Paris enter.
Jason: But Montague is bound as well as I...
Rafe: (Come on, hurry up!) *puts paper over script*
Mrs. Donatello: Rafe?
Mrs. Donatello: It's your turn.
Rafe: Oh. Excuse me sir, there's dog poop on your shoe.
Mrs. Donatello: Rafe!
Rafe: Your wife is ugly, and your daughter too. I think this play is stupid, so guess what? I'm out of here, and you can kiss my-
That was as far as I got until Mrs. Donatello ripped the page out of my hand.
At least everyone in my class was laughing. Only this time, they weren't laughing at me anymore. They were laughing with me.
The sino rang, and class was over
Rafe: *going to door*
Mrs. Donatello: Rafe, come here.
Rafe: *Goes to Mrs. Donatello's desk*
Mrs. Donatello: What was that?
Mrs. Donatello: It wasn't "nothing". First of all, let me say I noticed you kept Mr. Shakespeare's meter, and rhyme in what you wrote.
Mrs. Donatello: But your behavior was unacceptable. There are better ways to use your creativity, and I think you know that. I'm going to give you a warning this time, but you're skating on very thin ice. Understand?
Rafe: Thin ice is better then no ice at all.
Mrs. Donatello: Alright, get outta here.
While getting to my bus, all I could think about was Leo's challenge, and how I beaten it.
I got 20,000 points for using inappropriate language. 10,000 points for getting the ponies in my class to laugh, and 5,000 for Jeanne seeing what I did. Everything went great.
