Overhead Projector

Kids get excited for new school supplies. Teachers get excited too. I got an overhead projector in my classroom, and couldn’t wait to use it. My back wouldn’t be to the kids anymore, making it so much easier to keep them focused.

Yes, that’s a buzzing fly, Kyle. No, don’t think he’ll hurt you. Just ignore him. Problem solved, moving on.

The fly landed on my pinky and projected a very detailed, three-foot bug crawling on the wall. The class shrieked. Because I shrieked. And I fell on Kyle.

I sent us both to the nurse’s office to settle down.
