“When I was in third grade at Wilson School, I'd hide the teacher's pens. Just looking for attention, I guess. She found them easily, and never punished me, maybe because I was a pretty good student, too. Well, one day when it was time to line up for recess, Miss Fluke said I had to stay behind. I remember feeling my mouth drop open and hearing the other kids snicker and seeing them shake their heads. But I also remember figuring that, whatever my punishment was, I certainly had it coming.”
