A hush fell over the cafeteria today. We don't know why. One minute we're sitting in our territorial seats at the teacher lunch table, constructively criticizing our newest insurance carrier, and the next minute we hear silence. Believe me. That is quite disturbing. Silence has no place in a freshman lunch shift. It's eerie. Like when all the animals go silent at the water hole.
Then we hear it. Because everyone is silent, you know. Try to keep up. It's a beeping. Not like a horror movie called The Beeping. Like a kid playing a game on his phone. You'll never guess what it was.
A KID PLAYING A GAME ON HIS PHONE!
Yeah. Like that's noteworthy nowadays. We have an open phone policy. Before school, in the halls, and at lunch. I don't know what the significance of the silence was.
But it sure was nice for the ten seconds that it lasted.
