On Friday I was sick. I came in this morning to find Miss Slinger’s notes about a few misbehaviors. She reported that Chutney had had an “AT-TI-TUDE” all morning.
First thing when Chutney got to school this morning, she said to me, “Why weren’t you here yesterday?!”
“You mean Friday? Well, I was sick.”
Later, she asked me again, and I explained again. “I was sick, so I stayed home.”
“You shouldn’t do that!” She said.
“I get to stay home if I’m sick,” I told her.
Then I asked her why she had been so disrespectful to Miss Slinger.
“I was mad at you ’cause you weren’t here.”
