An excerpt …

(Here’s the problem.)

Stuck here in my worst class with a teacher who hates me. I know she does because she always calls on me. My problem is, there’s no big kids who sit here in the back. In math I can scrunch down behind Justin ‘cause he’s like six foot twelve and nobody ever sees me but all we got here in Social Studies are a bunch of little twerps … like me. (scratches his head) What? No, Mrs. Miller, I didn’t raise my hand. I just scratched my head!

(Here’s probably how George did it.)

Private! I need those boats this moment! What? Well tell them that I’m General Washington and I’ve got to get across that river! Sergeant, what’s the forecast? Oh, no! Did you check the Weather Channel? Shoot! Get extra fuel for the motors! Motor! The thing that makes the boat go!

(History can often be condensed.)

Gosh, I never realized how short you were, General! And you’re still on your horse? Well, get out there and win this war! I heard on CNN this morning that the Spanish troops were marching on St. Louis! We can’t have that, now can we General? I mean, where would the Cardinals play? Look out, General! It’s the French! They’re climbing over the top of the Statue of Liberty! I better give another speech real quick and stop ‘em! “Conceived in Liberty and dedicated to the prepositions and adjectives and dangling participles! Glory, glory Hallelujah over the land of the free and the home of the brave!” Yes! Look at ‘em run! Just look at ‘em run!
