Girl Trouble by Carlos Najera

The days at Haydock School passed with daily scoldings.

1815

I sat there each and every one of those days in complete ignorance of what was going on or what was being said by the teacher.  No one else tried to explain nor did any one care whether or not I learned English or what was being taught in the class.

A beautifull girl sat in front of me. Her name was Lolly, she was very friendly. She would turn back and say something to me and laugh,  of course I did not understand her, but I reasoned that it was funny, I had to be courteous so I laughed also.

Here comes Teacher again.  she shook her finger and scolded, she said something about talking, (a new word for me).   From time to time Lolly continued to turn and talk to me, she did the talking and I received the scoldings.

About jedwardnajera

I am a Poet. I live the life of a poet. I am an artist, a member of Gallery 9 in Los Altos, California. I published a novel Nena the Fairy and the Iron Rose, available through Amazon Books. I spent over thirty five years in a classroom. My father kept a living record of his lifetime as he lived through the Twentieth Century. He was born in 1908 and almost lived long enough to see us enter the new millennium. He was a mechanical engineer and had a wonderful love of history and science. He entrusted to me nearly 400 pages that he wrote through the years. He wrote in Spanish and I have spent six months translating these pages into English. Now I am in the process of editing, rewriting, and revising them. I am trying to post a new entry or chapter each Friday. Check in on us at least once a week for the latest post.
