Sorry Miss Heatly, I thought I was funny
Dear Miss Heatly,
I am sorry for saying a great, big, resounding "yes!" when you asked the class if we thought it was funny when you couldn't get the film reel threaded through the projector. I honestly thought the rest of the class was going to say yes as well.
This was back in about 1983/84 and I have never forgotten the look on your face or all my class mates faces, as they all took a quick intake of breath, eyes wide with the "she just said that out loud, look out!" look. Or how bad I felt being made to go and stand outside the library while the rest of the class watched the film.
Now, this was at a Convent school back in the 80s so is about the equivalent of torching the principal's car now days.
I'm sorry Miss Heatly, I really didn't mean it, I thought I was being funny.
On a sunnier note, wouldn't it have been awesome if DVDs were invented back then?
Kind regards, Sarah Gray
