FLOWER PLAY

This year of second grade is really busy.  I've been cast in both the flower play and Jack in the Beanstalk.  Mrs.  Simmons has told me that I may have to choose one or the other because it may be too much for me.  I'm in a bit of a quandary.  Jack in the Beanstalk stars Ethan Klash, cute bad boy who wears the red and gold Star Trek suit to school.

Once during show and tell in first grade Lydia Krump was passing around a Polish figurine.  When it got to Ethan he took out a black magic marker and casually scribbled all over it. When the teacher yelled at him to clean it off this instant he gobbed spit in his hand and smeared the ink until the little figurine was all grey.

But if I'm in the flower play, I'm the narrator.  I control the whole show. Plus it's a bit more refined.  I think I'll go with the flower play.
