T’other day, I received word that one of my form class had a detention. I politely enquired as to the reason for it, and she wouldn’t tell me. She would only reveal her transgressions after I physically sat on my hands, because my word that I wouldn’t lunge at her and try to kill her simply wasn’t good enough.

And yes, I know corporal punishment was outlawed almost twenty years ago, but that was mainly about caning and strapping; the law is vague about throttling.

(Disclaimer: The law is surprisingly clear about throttling. Do not try this at home. Unless you’ve got Year 10s, in which case I’m living proof that it works, so go ahead and give it a go.)
