Day of Denial

First Hour
“No! I don’t want to get up.
“No! I don’t want to brush my hair.”
“NO! I don’t want to wear a plaid uniform today.”
“NO! I don’t want to go over there.”

Second Hour
“No! I don’t want to do roll call.”
“NO! I don’t want to do a pop quiz.”
“NO! I don’t want to do Math, Science, Physics, Algebra, Literature, or even recess.
NO! I don’t want to be called a total cool math whiz.”

Third Hour
“No! I don’t want to take a break.”
“NO! I don’t want to have lunch.”
“NO! I don’t want to eat green beans, Brussel sprouts, mashed potatoes, or anything with sprouts.”
“NO! I don’t have any snacks to munch.”

Fourth Hour
“No. I don’t want to know about Napoleon.”
“NO! I don’t want to recite poems.”
“NO! I don’t want to do Chemistry, History, Geography, or Geology.”
“NO! I don’t want to be here today. I want to go home.”

Fifth Hour
“No. I don’t want to be positive today.”
“NO! I don’t want to be a little beam of sunshine today.”
“NO! I don’t care if I’m home, up in my room, lying in my bed.”
“NO! I don’t want to seem all happy today.”

I am determined to complete this one day of denial.
And I will see it through to the end.
NO matter how difficult it may be.
