*My lesson in IRONY*

By Freek at 11:43 pm on Wednesday, February 11, 2009

I spoke these in Malay, in my cikgu-turned-monster mode.

Me: “Why did’t you come for remedial yesterday?!” (Kenapa awak tak datang remedial semalam?)

(other kids already start to close their ears since I’d already warned them of this impending outburst on the remedial lesson itself)

Kid: “My watch was spoiled.” (Jam saya rosak.)

At this moment, I swear, if perspiration could evaporate at top speed, my tudung would have flown off by the steam produced from my boiling blood. It was like, “ZENG!” The other kids just gasped in the absurdity of the words spoken and have decided rightly to place their fingers deeper into their ears. Cos’ what ensued, I shall not type here again cos’ even now, just remembering about it, my heart is doing a 100km/h race. Seriously, I’ve never rolled my eyes so much in my life, my heart never jogged so fast, and my upper teeth and lower teeth never came into such embrace as they did the moment those words were spoken.

And since I excel at shooting my mouth off, I had to really choose my words, ‘case I’d regret them later. Those ugly words were at the tip of my tongue, I tell you. But, I used all the strength I could to swallow them.

You know what really pushed my “DETONATE” button? It was the thought of how ridiculous it was for him to have gone home to pack his bag after school, claim that he didn’t come to remedial because his?watch was spoiled and?so he couldn’t tell the time but he could?STILL come in time for CCA later that day. Absolute crap I tell ya. Even the other kids agreed when I asked them, “Masuk akal tak, alasan dia?”.

ZENG sey kepala otak aku jadinya. Sakit jantung.

And the irony of it all…..

The day’s lesson: A comprehension passage about the heart (functions, diseases, exercise…)
