Mom and Dad were with me as we waited for my teacher to come to the office to retrieve me. When she arrived, she was kind and asked me to follow her back to her classroom.

Funny story is that I had told my roommate about the basketball game and she also wanted to attend the game, so the day of the homecoming basketball game we went to eat at A-I’s cafeteria, since it is closest to the student Rec center and after we finished eating dinner and of course serving ourselves some ice cream we began to walk to the student REC center.
