Today Doris has gone off to Hyogo Prefecture on the school skiing trip. After much dithering and dallying, it was decided that Doris will NOT ski on the skiing trip. She can go with her manky finger but will not be allowed to ski. She herself actually agreed to this because the anaesthetic needle she had the day before yesterday has scared the living daylights out of her, she does not want to go there again.
Despite this she was very chirpy and really looking forward to the bus ride and the mealtimes and the overnight stay.
Sunshine did the same trip a few years back, though some things have changed because of * dreadful* behaviour on the part of some kids that year, students are no longer permitted to take snacks.
In sunshine’s year, some
reprobate delinquents kids actually came up with the idea to smuggle in a few packs of eats to have a midnight feast. The wickedry of it, what dark and twisted mind could concieve of such a plan on a school trip.
On their return, somehow the teachers found out about the contraband Pockys and all hell was let loose. 2 days of lessons lost while all the students were frog marched into the gym for lectures on deceit and rule breaking and general inappropriate behaviour. On the second day they were each given a piece of paper and ordered to name names, McCarthyism is alive and well in Ikoma. Smoke came out my ears at this point and I was prompted to make yet another call to the school expressing my disapproval.
Back in my day school trip contraband was more likely to be a bottle of Woodpecker cider and 20 B and H, and we considered it a roaring success if no one came home pregnant.
So Doris and her year are paying for the sins of those who went before and couldn’t keep their grubby hands off the chocolate.
There is also to be no
mobile phones ( fair enough)
DS, PSP etc ( equally fair)
Ipods ( ?)
comics ( one ‘proper’ book each)
and finally, and I kid you not,
NO JENGA, because we all know what debauchery Jenga leads to.
So far it’s looking like too much fun my brain hurts.
3 years of JHS here and everyone is more than prepared to enlist.
