    and gil is JUST NOW finding this out?

    I used to teach high school. we knew more about the kids and their families than the kids did – and didn’t even try.

    If Gil is just now finding out all this info, he’s . . . hell, I dunno.

    But yeah – dramatic effect for the reader.

    Gil should answer by pointing to the Gil Thorp name plate, pointing to himself, smiling, and nodding his head vigorously.

    “John Pascoe’s guardians. And interpretive dance teachers.”

    She has her arms crossed, which means “I’ve made up my mind”.

    A.P.? Start by teaching something, anything, rather than assuming every kid already knows how to play whatever the game of the month is.
    Or, as Ron White says, “But, if your Ph.D. is in physical education, you’re still just a gym teacher.”

    What’s up with the perv going in for the crotch grab in P1?

    And apparently Mimi’s boob is talking with Gil’s wrist in P2.

    Wait! Another talking boob in P3!

    In all reality, and as John Pascoe s guardian we feel that you need to know that we are filing for a restraining order on his behalf due to the nuumerous verbal attempts by you to make hm communicate verbaly with you. On the planet John came from there is no verbal communication.

    “We have not explained John’s condition to anyone associated with the school, we were waiting to meet the Athletic Director, the most logical person to tell the whole story.”

    I think most parents quit talking to Gil after he signed that lifetime shoe contract with Converse back in the 1960’s to always have the Milford basketball team wear those sleek looking all-white Chuck’s sneakers that probably keep the kids from winning any games.
