Because my parents never found out, I remember getting away with __________ as a teenager…
If there is something good about a strong storm, a regular student will say that classes will be suspended. Who doesn’t love just staying at home, watching your favorite show on TV, or probably just sleep all day?
But my high school was different. Once classes get suspended, expect that they will schedule a Saturday class to cover the lost days. At first it was really nothing, but when we realized that we were going to school on six straight days, sometimes it was not fun. What was cool about Saturday classes though was you get to wear casual clothes in school. Yes, jeans and a regular shirt.
Every Saturday, since we are the only school who have classes. My classmates and I will sometimes meet at the place where the tricycles wait, in order to save fare. I arrived there and notice that I have three classmates still waiting for one person to join them on their tricycle ride. I then checked my watch, and notice that we still have ten minutes before we get late so I ask them what are they waiting for? But one classmate said that he doesn’t want to go to school, during that time, I feel the same way, and to my surprise, the other classmates were also having the same lazy feeling. Such coincidence, right?
I told them first to move to a different area where no one will see us. All of our hopes to pass this Saturday class will be jeopardized if someone will say that they saw us waiting at the tricycle area. Good thing, no one saw them.
Since it was still seven in the morning, we cannot go to the mall. Computer shops were still closed so playing Counter strike will not be an option, also, rentals were expensive those days. We were close to just giving up and go to school when one of my fellow cutting classmate said that there is no one in their house. His family went to the province and since he has class he stayed in Muntinlupa. His parents also left him the house key. Haha! The universe is really with us on our wicked plan. :D
So there, we went to his house, watched Cable TV all day, played UNO cards and chess, and gossiped about stuff in school and our classmates. We also planned our excuse the next day so that our teacher will not suspect that the four of us were together. I will say that I have to go to the province, someone will say that he has a family gathering that he has to attend to, another will say that he has Saturday church, and the last will be sick. A promise was also created that no one will even talk about the things that we did, and if someone get caught, he will not tell who was part of the plan.
Monday came and we found out that only 16 people went to class, haha. The previous Saturday class was an epic fail! But the people who went to school got an additional 20 point for the periodical exam.
My parents never found out this little dirty deed that I have made. :) And if something good turned out with the whole experience. Aside from learning how to play UNO, it will be new friends. Nothing beats having new friends.
Enjoy your Saturday!
Oh, This is my 200th post! :)
