SPRING!!!! OMG, how exciting. So what it may snow fall for a day or two. This has been a great winter.
Here comes the further adventures of Charlie Costigan. Aunt and uncle have given her the choice of private school or public. She doesn’t want to cause them to spend extra money but off uncle takes her to the best private school nearby. Dressed in new clothes, Charlie straightens her shoulders as she leaves the limousine. Uncle Stuart introduces her to his friend , the head mistress, and tells her to call Robert when she is finished with testing.
I sat alone in a large room filled with, I did quick scan, fifty desks;”When the clock strikes eight thirty, begin,” said Sally the proctor and she disappeared.
I finished in fifty five minutes; she returned to find me eating an apple and drinking from a bottle of water.
Stunned, she said, “It always takes at least two hours to finish so now I’ll take you to the head mistress.”
Confident I aced everything, multiple choice is good if you have multiple personalities.
Mrs. Larimore left her important place behind her desk and sat next to me, a frown between her eyebrows. “The girls who attend Hamilton Academy are from privileged backgrounds and from what I understand you come from a small town in Minnesota, a different social strata.
Yeah, I got it, they ‘re rich__ and I’m a dirt farmer, by comparison.
Sally burst in with my test scores saying “you’ve got to see this.”
After reading my scores, Mrs. Larimore smiled and asked if I’d like to see the playing field, the gymnasium, lunchroom.
“Thank you but no , I’ll call Robert to bring me back to my family to discuss this morning”; and Charlie straightened her new clothes and left leaving Mrs. Larimore speechless.
