Now...back to my stories.
This would be the case of the broken thermometer. When I was in fourth grade I love my teacher so much that I would incessantly volunteer to clean up things and all, fix the shelves and all, and play teacher and all. Everyday. Everyone is doing it in class anyways and it's been a fad to be the teachers favorite. I would not want to be left out or be marked the bad kid in fourth row.
So on with the thermometer...clean, clean, clean I go and I hit this thermometer on the wall. Naturally, (and I don't need to compound on what forces and vector quantities hurled it away from the stationary) out from the wall it went and straight to the floor...spilled out them mercury and all.
Who's the hero? Ain't me no more. Teacher comes up, and says, "you pay for that". I said, "Ok".
Here's the clincher....it's been 12 years since. And I haven't paid no single penny just yet, she forgot about it but I'm still haunted by that to date.
