Monologue Mania Day # 1327 Classy Assignment by Janet S. Tiger (c) Oct. 2, 2017     

                                     Classy Assignment

          (The teacher is very old school, with a pointer for the chalkboard, sensible shoes, and very buttoned down clothing.  She looks over the audience with clear disapproval)

Now class, I am very disappointed.  I expected more from all of you.  I had a very nice parent give me a beautiful apple this morning, and at sometime during this day, when I was away from my desk, the apple....(takes a deep breath of disapproval)....WAS TAKEN.

I realize that this was probably the action of a very foolish person or persons, but the apple is now suspended from a tree in the schoolyard, and it appears that some students used objects, possibly straws with rocks, to shoot at this poor, beknighted fruit!  

Now I am aware that this is the first day of class, but I want you to understand what is about to happen.....are you all listening closely?  The perpertrator or perpetrators of this crime will be discovered because everyone knows who they are.....and I am about to know as well, as someone.....a very helpful person....wrote me this note telling me who is at fault!

        (She holds up the paper.)

I have not read it yet, because I wish to give the guilty party or parties the chance to confess and show everyone that they may be foolish, but they are honest.......

        (She looks around with a practiced eye, sees something and she stands up tall, smiles)

No takers?  No honest folk in this class?  I see.....

        (Opens the letter, looks around)

This, my students, is possibly the most important lesson I will teach you....a lesson you will remember always.....a lesson that is one you will carry with you throughout your pitiful little lives....what is the name of this lesson?  This is the first class assignment.....the assignment of....blame.......
