Sneak Peek: Dear Dumb Diary #9

Posted by at 11:49 am in Dear Dumb Diary, Reads | Permalink

Ddd9_130 Everyone’s favorite middle-schooler, Jamie Kelly, is back — with an all-new, all-funny diary! A lot has been happening at Mackerel Middle School, and Jamie is documenting every minute of it. Check out this special peek at Dear Dumb Diary #9: That’s What Friends Aren’t For! Jamie promises that everything she writes is true . . . or at least as true as it needs to be.

Dear Dumb Diary,

We’ve entered that part of the school year where you begin to wonder if maybe even the teachers are beginning to lose interest in education. We study something — like igneous rocks, or spit molecules, or one of those countries that looks like where they are going to build a country one day — we glue-stick a bunch of things about it to a piece of poster board, they get hung up in the hallway, and then we never talk about them again.

So toward the end of the year, just to keep things interesting. the school has lots of events like an Art Show, a Talent Show, and Bingo Night, which features a game that was developed long ago so that we’d have something to do until fun was invented. 
If I ever become a teacher, I’m going to jazz it up a bit. Maybe I’ll glue-stick the actual students up in the hallway, and when you walk up to one, he’ll have to tell you what he knows about spit molecules or whatever.

Also, I’m going to make it so that if a kid bothers me, I can legally shoot her out of a cannon. I really may have psychic powers, because I think I’ve read the mind of teacher who was thinking that exact thing one time when Mike Pinsetti got almost all of a crayon stuck in his ear.
