Agatha Elizabeth Sassafras read her English teachers remarks on her latest assignment again at the lunch table.
“Be more succinct?” she said to her friends at the table.
They just laughed.
“What does she require from me?” she complained. “To be a caveman communicating in monosyllabic language? Must I provide her with a thumbnail version of my understanding of the literature?”
Her friends laughed even harder.
“What are all of you chuckling at?” she asked, becoming frustrated. “Well, I am glad you find me so amusing, but I am contemplating my future. Please show some decorum and proper friendly etiquette when listening to a compadre, acquaintance, and elementary school companion.”
The bell rang and the table cleared quickly leaving Agatha sitting alone at the table putting away her things.
“Try being more succinct next time,” Miss Betty said as she started cleaning the tables off.
