Teacher: Clear your desks, everyone. We're having a quiz on the assigned summer reading. Paige: Not this again! Teacher: Excuse me? Paige: I had this exact same anxiety dream when school started LAST year! I say "what summer reading?!?" And you say "didn't you sign up for the English department e-mails?" Then you say I was supposed to read some huge book like "Moby Dick" and then I freak out and scream and wake up. Teacher: Actually the assigned book was "Animal Farm." It's fairly short. Paige: Ok, so this year's version is SLIGHTLY different. Teacher: Five minutes left, people. Paige: Also last year I would've woken up by now. That's different, too.
