A Series of Unfortunate Events

Hello everyone! Today is not going to be a beauty-related post. I'd just like to share with you a story that happened to me yesterday.

Setting: Grade 4 Classroom during recess time

Cast of Characters: Four Grade 4 students, one Grade 5 student (all males) and me


Student A was eating sotanghon soup for recess. His friend, Student B thought it would be funny to get the carrot from his soup, squish and and throw it up the ceiling. It got stuck there, so I told Student B to get it out of the ceiling. He tried standing on the table, but he wasn't tall enough so Student C stood on top of the table with a broom in his hand. He succeeded in taking the carrot out. Unfortunately, a piece of hair from the broom fell into Student A's soup. Annoyed, Student A threw a spoonful of soup at Student C. To retaliate, Student C started squirting his water bottle at Student A. I, of course, got annoyed and took Student C outside, got a mop and told him to clean up the mess he did. In the one minute I was gone, a Grade 5 student made his way to my classroom and said with his fingers pointing, "Nobody move!" Student D then got his toy gun and shot the Grade 5 student with a foam bullet. The foam bullet went straight for the Grade 5 student's eye and he had to be brought to the hospital for a check-up.

Yikes! What a day!
