I haven’t done this in a while… I’m trying to get back into it! They’re fun!
And this book is hilarious.
“Ms. Byczykowski has this weird habit of overenunciating when she reads and accompanies that with exaggerated facial expressions. I guess she’s trying to make sure we all understand what she’s saying, but instead we get all distracted by watching the afternoon sun reflect off her gold crowns whenever she says “The Battle of Antietam.” When she gets to the Emancipation Proclamation I’m going to have to wear sunglasses.” Zits Chillax, page 2
