Written By: Charlene L. Amsden - Oct• 14•11


After Jack’s family moved from Australia to America, Jack came home within an hour of being left in his first grade classroom. “These yanks are mental,” he said. “I ain’t no sheila and I’m not going back!”

“Whatever happened?” His mum asked.

“Teacher says I gotta skip to the loo!”
