Saturday Centus – Wk#160 – Prompt: “ARGH, MATEY!” – 102 words – “Tested”

25 May

Captain Silver Beard Jones eyed his motley crew, “ARGH, MATEY!”

Audible sighs were heard.

“Today’s the day we separate the crew from plank walkers.”

Another sigh as one whispered, “I knew it! Another spelling test!”

The first few times the class had seen their teacher’s alter ego, they’d enjoyed the fun but they soon learned it was his way of breaking the tension when he intended giving a test. This time they were ready.

Captain Silver Beard Jones was shocked, “Everyone scored 100%.”

The class smiled at their bountiful plunder. Their teacher had forgotten to erase their spelling list from the board.

      Thanks for the comment.

      It is loosely based on a true story. I didn’t take on a pirate persona but I had once forgotten to take down a class spelling list. 🙂

    I loved this phrase!

    Shiver me timbers!
