Squirming restlessly in his seat, he knew he was in trouble with the lesson for this day.
Questioning every one of the questions on the board, he struggled with analyzing what the teacher wanted to know.
Calling his name, the time had come to go to the board and answer the third question: Who is the first lady? As he struggled with the right answer, someone was whispering from the sidelines, distracting him, but trying to be helpful.
Grasping the chalk tightly in his sweat saturated hand, he tapped on the board with the chalk before writing, “Eve.”
Schoolmates let out giggles and the teacher even had a slight smile on her usual stern face before she said, I mean of this country.
“Heck,” he said, “I oughta get extra credit ‘cause I’s thinkin’ of the whole world!”
The whole class then burst out in laughter and the teacher had to agree that on this day, there was no questioning that the world could use another Eve.
