Biology class was so dull until we finally persuaded lanky old Mr. Turner to open his secret cupboard.
“Watch the spines, they sting,” he said.
Mr. Turner was nothing if not acutely aware of academic differentiation.
Lowest achievers each got a tentacle.
Gifted and talented, the vital organs.
Sandra Fey and Dean Allen took a pair of scissors to the brain, which I personally thought was a missed opportunity.
Lucy D poked and prodded the cadaver’s purple antennae.
When, inevitably, Jake Plumb pricked his finger on one of its spines, I was given the task of tracking his transformation.
