Before Mr. Aaronson left, they gave me like a million phone numbers in case there was an emergency, and then Mrs. I really wish Mrs. But me behave myself? Fat chance. Everything was okay while Eric and Michelle were still up. I mean, I brought my homework along, but that was just too depressing, to be doing French grammar on Saturday night.
