don't ruin the myth

i was supposed to read a chapter in my classics text about ancient theatre in greece. although possibly engrossing, my mind certainly wasn't open to embracing the reason behind the invention of tragedy as an homage to the god dionysus. instead, i took great pleasure in tormenting kate, who was trying to read like a good, nice, studious student.

it all came to a head when i turned to her and yelled "DUCK JISM!"

she collapsed into a heap, laughing with her head on her crossed arms, lifting it only to send me a half assed attempt at an evil glare.

satisfied, i went back to my work.
