Totally Awkward Tuesday- Totally Distracted

It's Tuesday again, and you know what that means? TOTALLY AWKWARD TUESDAY WITH TOVA DARLING! Yay!

This week we shall address one of my craziest qualities: how easily distracted I am.

One day, during my Women's Chorus class, we were all sitting in a semi circle. We practicing one of our songs for a competition. The Soprano II section were getting picked on this particular day, leaving my Alto Buttocks sitting upright in my chair.

Mind you, my chorus class is always at the end of the day. It's right after lunch, I'm tired. And to top it all off, my mother probably packed me a bit too much sugary goodness that day.

Now, focus up at the air vents. Hmm... Interesting. There are these moldy spots on the four corners. Air Vent A's mold spot on Corner one is bigger than corner two, three, or four! BUT, look at Air Vent B... It is 6 tiles away from Air Vent A, but Corner two's mold spot is...

While I am looking up at the air vents, in a daze, one of my friends in the Soprano I is trying to find out what I am looking at. Also, my friend sitting beside me is curious. "What are you looking at, Moxie?"

I don't want to get in trouble by my sort-of-not-in-a-good-mood-at-the-moment chorus teacher, so I whisper, "Nothing."

I put my head back in the clouds. Okay, Corner two's mold spot is bigger than Corner 1 , 3, or 4! OOOH man, that's annoying. Air vent A is 6 tiles away from Air vent B. Air Vent C is 6 tiles away from Corner B. We almost have a square here, but stupid...

My friend who was sitting next to me is now looking at the ceiling with me. "I really don't see what you're looking at," she whispers.

My chorus teacher notices. Oh crap. "What's wrong?!" She says angrily, not like you would say if someone was crying or had just broken a bone.

My friend in the Soprano 1 section spoke. "Moxie is looking at something on the ceiling."

"What's up there Moxie?" She says impatiently.

"Nothing. I'm just observing the air vents. They are kind of interesting."

A friend of mine in the Soprano 2 section giggle. So typical of Moxie, I'm sure she's thinking.

My chorus teacher rolls her eyes and continues practicing with the Soprano 2 section.

Alright, here we go again. But stupid Air Vent D is 5 squares away from Air Vent A. NOW IT'S SOME KIND OF WEIRD POLYGON. NO! IT'S GOTTA BE A SQUARE!

Now my chorus teacher was getting mad. She slammed on the piano and had hate in her voice, "YOU'RE DISTRACTING MY SOPRANO 2s!!! STOP LOOKING AT THE AIR VENTS."

D: "Why can't you guys just let me look at the air vents in peace?!?!" I begged.

She gives me an evil glare.

"Okay. I won't do it again... Sorry."

Now I look at the air vents and wonder, "Why hasn't anyone cleaned those things?"
