Well, I did step out of line. The principal, Mrs. Baskerville, had told every pupil to not kick a kickball if someone was retrieving it. You guessed it. The ball came rolling up, I was one of the younger kids and never got a chance to touch the kickball. How could anyone so deprived resist? I kicked the ball at close range and it flew into sweet MARCIA ROTHGAB's face. HELLO MRS. BASKERVILLE.
