It was hard getting up to go to school this morning after the holiday. I was really glad it was going to be a short school week, especially after today. There's been fires close by and the teacher, Mr. Howler, had the windows closed all day. It wasn't too hot so it didn't bother me at first. After lunch was a different story though. The smells that happened in the room were terrible! Everyone had the same thing for lunch so I have no idea why the smells coming from the boys, especially Little Ape, were so toxic. I begged and pleaded with Mr. Howler to open the windows, even one, but he refused to do it. He said said something about the air quality being bad outside. I asked him what's the difference if the air quality was just as bad inside. I was sent out into the hall for that. I was able to finish my work in a funk free environment. I sure hope tomorrow's air quality is better and we can open the windows again!
