When the Bell Tolls No Longer

The other day I snarled at the intercom in third period.

The way the lunches are scheduled means that a bell rings no less than TEN times during the course of that one class.

At 5000 decibels.

In my room.

While we’re trying to have an intelligent discussion.

I made a wish, after snarling–something about bringing in a giant magnet to slap over the grill to silence it.

And one of my juniors brought me one!

In he walks, with a big, white magnetic circle and voila. Almost silenced bells. We can still hear them, but we are no longer cowering in the corner with our hands over our ears. Discussions proceed uninterrupted.

I love that boy.

(Also, on a side note: we had tacos.)
