So... I go to my first class and I am when they called roll, my name was not called. When I asked about that, I was told that that class was full and I got bumped to another teacher's class for that subject. Okay. So, I head to her classroom to find that due to a sprinkler system leak, that class had been moved to another room. Where? Nobody could tell me. So, I went door to door till I found the right class, but I was very late. The teacher was very sweet and understanding and helped me find a desk and pointed to a stack of papers on the desk that I wasc to choose from for a writing exercise.
The assignment was to write a one-page story using the three elements on the assignment page. Every page was different. I took one, sat down, nothing came to me for some reason. I can't remember the details, but it was something like, "Write a story that incorporates a road trip, 3 apples, and a cousin." I had total writer's block and I got up and took another page from the stack, thinking I might have better luck with a different list of required elements. I came up with something and just as I was folding up my story with the assignment page I was working from...you know how you fold a notebook paper page vertically and write your name, date, class, etc. on the top front side...I happened to see on the back of the assignment page (bottom of the back side), "Be sure to start your story with this phrase: ..." (I don't remember what it was, something like: "I had been looking forward to this day for....")
