When I was in preschool there was this really weird
system of timeout where they' d put you in this giant
plastic Bucket sort like this one:
And the rule was you couldn' t leave the bucket for
In case you didm' t know. I was what the teachers
referred to as a "difficult timid" which is code for
walking entity sass" so I was M the
bucket quite a bit.
Once they put me in the bucket for thirty minutes-
and I thought that was incredibly unfair so I grabbed
the handles and shifted my body repeatedly until
the bucket and I were out of the classroom, in the
hallway, and through the front door. They found me
in the parking lot scooting to freedom in the time-
out Bucket, The teachers were furious and I said,
Hey, I never left the bucket"
So they called my mum and told her what I did and
she just said, "Well, he never left the bucket"
