As we know by now, everything is awful. What's more, it's Sunday, and absolutely no one has done their homework. For this reason I am going to tell you a small, true story. It has no moral, and no value beyond what it is.
Here we go》
》once upon a time (last week), my youngest daughter Ruth (18) went into a semi supervised psychology revision session at college. The teacher wasn't there yet, but Ruth and her friends *had* to stay, because the teacher would be attending later》
》Ruth is an anxious but very soft hearted soul. She also has a massive phobia of bees/wasps, having witnessed her twin being stung by a bee when they were about 2. (Yes you need to know this)》
》So! Ruth and her friends walked into the classroom, shut the door, sat down. Only then did they notice the ENORMOUS bee, pulsating quietly on one of the desks. Oh the horror. Immediately, and with a touching sense of teamwork and solidarity 》
》Ruth's 3 friends ran screaming to a corner and shouted at Ruth to sort it out.
Ruth did not want to touch the monster bee. She desperately looked around the room searching for something, anything, to contain the bee in. There was no handy glass, no one possessed a cup》
》suddenly Ruth spied a solution! Remember they were in a psychology classroom? Over on the teacher's desk was a solitary item: a life size replica of a human brain. And yes, damnit, it was hollow》
》using all her courage Ruth rushed at the bee and slammed the brain over the bee. A laminated revision sheet on the symptoms of depression was passed to her, and she gingerly slid this under the brain, carefully trying not to squash it. To the window!》
》thinking her ordeal was over, Ruth flipped away the revision sheet, expecting the bee to fly happily away... but no, to her horror the world's biggest, and now angriest bee was still inside the brain, an inch from her hands! Ruth let out a blood curdling scream and》
》hurled the brain into the air...》
》and so it came to pass that Ruth's friend Meghan, sitting 2 stories down in a particularly dull English lit lesson, heard a massive scream followed by what appeared to be a human brain falling past the classroom window, and was witness to the hysteria that this caused》
》rather magnificently, to my knowledge, no one has yet revealed the true story of the falling brain to anyone outside of their friendship group, and so it remains a mystery to staff & students alike. Ruth retrieved the brain & put it back on the teacher's desk》
》and that, my friends, is the end of the story. Have a lovely Sunday! X
》Talking of uncontrollable giggles, there is a postscript to this story.
Poor Ruth suffers from truly awful anxiety and OCD, so her Dr asked her to fill in a diary, listing things that made her anxious, triggered her OCD etc over a couple of weeks》
》We are due to see the Dr tonight so Ruth asked me to read through her - very lengthy - description of her daily traumas. Obviously this was pretty stressful and sad, so many things worry her, it is heartbreaking 》
》but then, out of the blue, this sentence popped up. (Bear in mind we are handing this solemnly to a Dr tonight, who has to read it in front of us》
ANYWAY! I am now quite looking forward to the appointment. Should we warn the Dr? Give some context? Or just sit back and watch...
