Hello! Hello! Hello!

How are you today? How are you today? How are you today?

Happy?!? Happy?!? Happy?!? (fake smile)

Sa-ad?!? Sa-ad?!? Sa-ad?!? (not-so-fake almost-tear)

Hungry? Hungry? Hungry? (Rub belly)

Turn to page 3. Turn to page 3. Turn to page 3.
Are you on page 3? Are you on page 3? Are you on page 3?

Which team is listening? Which team is listening? Which team is listening?

Who wants to read first? Who wants to read first? Who wants to read first?

Which team is listening? Which team is listening? Which team is listening?

Which team is going to lose a point? Which team is going to lose a point? Which team is going to lose a point?

How do you spell ‘two’? How do you spell ‘two’? How do you spell ‘two’?

Repeat after me. Repeat after me. REPEAT AFTER ME.

Pick up your trash. Pick up your trash. Pick up your trash.

Push in your chairs. Push in your chairs. PUSH IN YOUR CHAIRS.
Line up. Line up. Line up. Line up. Line up. Line up. Line up. Line up. LINE. UP.

There. That’s how my day was.
