    I was always terrified of telling my dad when I got in trouble at school. Glad your Dad took it well!

      I’m glad he took it well too! He was a bit different so I lucked out in instances like this. Still…. No one wants to make their dad mad as kids, right?Syrana

    I would have been the same way (scared of my dad’s reaction). Funny how the fear is actually worse than the punishment.miriamgomberg

      Fear can really do a number on us. And even if my dad would have been mad the worst he would have done was yelled and grounded me. I just hated the thought of disappointing him!Syrana

    I had detention once, also. It was in middle school. I believe it was because some girl wanted to fight me over a boy. It got as far as her pulling my hair and trying to punch me in a headlock while I protected my face. Really, I don’t know why I had to go.

      Whoa! Yeah it seemed like no matter how fights went down everyone involved got the same punishment.

      Was he worth it? ;)Syrana

    I got two detentions when in school. Once in middle school, for chewing gum in class, and then once in high school, for kissing my high school boyfriend in the hall. Looking back now, they were harmless defenses (though both broke the rules), but I was so scared to show my parents that first slip. I’m not sure they knew about the second one, as I was driving to school by then.SGRcom

      OOOH you trouble maker you! :P

      I almost got it for gum a few times too. I never really understood why it was such a no-no…so I got good at hiding it in my lip!Syrana

    Great story! Confession time: I would have totally been one of the kids to rat you out. I was such a wet blanket of a kid.

    Oh those wild second graders! I think chase/be chased games must be standard grade school fare. Come to think of it, we had a game like that in fifth grade and it involved bad words, too! Hmm….

      I definitely remember lots of variations of chasing each other around. I think the teachers liked those games so they’d wear us out.

      And how funny would it be if it was the same game?Syrana

    I had detention once, too – I don’t remember why, though! I remember it was in the theatre room – and there were movie posters all over the wall.

      It’s funny how some details can be so clear while others are a complete blur. Their importance doesn’t seem to matter either.Syrana

    LOL! I never got a formal detention but I was “benched” once. We were all supposed to be outside for recess but I snuck back inside to play the Etch-a-Sketch. I had to sit at the desk with my head down for the rest of recess.

    lol..love the story and your Dad’s reaction. Yes, the dirty words are bad, but we’re all guilty of it and you could’ve been doing so much worse.
    If the worst thing my kid gets in trouble for at school is some bad language I’ll be thrilled.DealinandDishin

      I think that’s what my dad was happy about…it could have been worse! We didn’t even know what half of them meant lolSyrana

      Haha! I’d really surprise you in person then. I’ve toned it down a lot but a few drinks… yet Rissa is all repeating a few choice words. Oops!Syrana
