Whoever said it would be fun to chaperone the middle school class trip to Toronto was wrong. Raging hormones, silly pranks, surly teens... what had she been thinking?
It was bad enough that some of the kids jumped in the fountain right before dinner. Worse was the stink bomb in the dorm. Where do they find those things?
What did her in, though, was when her top student, Nicky, and Nicky's best friend Mike snuck off in the middle of the night to get tattoos to commemorate the trip. How was she going to explain that to their parents? Somehow, she didn't think they'd be thrilled that their children now had tiny wedges of swiss cheese permanently imprinted on their shoulders.
Yes, it had been a long week. She kept telling herself that someday it would make a great story.
Someday... but not tonight, she thought as the bus pulled into the school parking lot.
Home at last! Thank god almighty, she was home at last!
