Silly Tales

On target!

I was a student of Shaheen School and was well known for being an athlete and the pundit of evil ideas. We used to have at least two yearly cricket tournaments either inter school or versus others. So, right before one of those tournaments we were bunking class and playing cricket telling the teachers we had to practice since this time it was our school's prestige on the line. We wanted to make the game more interesting and so we decided to bet. The rule was any bowler who could hit a batsman a bit lower then their lower abdomen will get 20 bucks. And that wasn't it, NO SPINNERS WERE ALLOWED! That was the day we realised why cricket had a proper rule of its own and it's not a game where you bet on such targets.

Out of the blue!

Honestly, I hated studying Bengali the most of all the subjects back in school. Not only for the subject itself, but also because our Bengali teacher was unbelievably strict and judging by her looks no one would want to mess with her. If, by any chance, we could not finish our Bengali task in

time, we were done for good. So this one day our Bengali teacher comes to class, agitated and angry. We sat there in complete silence, our heads bowed down, doing our task, when out of the blue we heard a sound of wood cracking and a loud scream. We looked up and burst out laughing as the teacher's chair broke and she fell on the floor. To save herself from the embarrassment, she laughed back and we later helped her get up. That probably was the first and last time we ever saw her laugh.

Wear and tear

We were once sent to a field trip abroad from school and my classmates and I were very excited about the whole deal.Everything was so well planned out that we were all quite confident that nothing could go wrong.At the airport in the waiting lounge, I entered the coffee shop to get some tea for some of us. Suddenly, a cup of tea fell on me and I had to change into something dry as soon as possible. I took out the first thing I found in my handbag and put it on since we were also being called for boarding then. After landing, I had caught people staring at me and giggling. I assumed it was because I was wearing my night clothes. But soon after that very wrong assumption, a friend of mine came up to me and said, “Maybe you should cover your behind.” I went to the washroom and looked in the mirror and a sudden shudder of horror struck me. My dress was completely torn from the back and everyone had visual access to my pink inners. It has to be the most embarrassing moment of my life!
