sigh Mr. Pierce….
…I can see the punchline a mile away.
You had me captivated with your storyline where Gina and Nate place a bet on him going without getting a detention for a week. That was Breaking-Bad gripping, and I cheered when Nate “won” and Gina showed her true colours, welching on the bet.
As much as everyone enjoys a good running gag, a-la Charlie Brown kicking Lucy’s football, I just want to go on record and say….
TRY SOMETHING DIFFERENT.
Maybe employ a little schadenfreude, seeing Gina getting in deep trouble – or better yet, Mrs. Godfrey stuck in a pickle, and no one except Nate can help.
I know you exercise your moral right – nobody has the right to tell J.K. Rowling what to do with Harry Potter. She has exclaimed the right as an author to torture her characters as much and as often as she pleases….
C’mon. You can do better than this.
Challenge accepted, Mr. Pierce?
