Hello, people. Yesterday at my school, we had a lockdown. No, not a real one, don't worry. There were no shooters at my school or anything. We were just having a "preparation lockdown" so that when a real one happens, we'll know what to do. We won't all start to panic and call our families(which I'm pretty sure people will do anyway).
So, yesterday, I had the lockdown during English class. I was annoyed at that because I like English and that was such a waste of the class. I would have preferred if it was during gym which I despise and would love to miss. Anyways, we heard a message on the intercom about thirty minutes after class started. It was our principal Mr. D saying in his hilarious Quebecois accent: "Lockdown code red... lockdown code red...."
So, everyone in my class near the windows closed the blinds and we locked the door. Then, we all just sat in complete silence but then...
There were these loud knocks on the door and someone shaking the doorknob. I jumped because I wasn't expecting it. I guess it was some teacher going around banging on doors or something. But, anyway, it was creepy. And after the person left our door to bang on others, some kid in the back of the class said, "House keeping," in this really funny Spanish accent.
Did you see the episode of Family Guy when Peter finds out that he is a Mexican immigrant and gets fired from his job, gets a Spanish accent and works at a hotel as a maid? Well, it was really funny. That was how the guy in my class said it. Exactly the same way.
So, of course, since we all watch Family Guy and understood the joke, we all started laughing. We were laughing really loud and making a whole bunch of noise. Our teacher was trying to shush us and whispering, "If this was a real one, we'd all be dead."
Which is true. But, if it was a real one, we would have all been much more serious.
Anyways, it was really funny. We knew it was a fake lockdown because we got letters sent home for it and everything. The letter that I forgot to give to my dad...
PS: Sorry if this post seems boring and rambly-ish(har har). I'm just in such a bad mood today. It's really hard to post something sounding happy. :/
