In seventh grade, A classmate that sat in front of me in my drama class seemed pretty proud of a small wooden jewelry box he made in his wood shop class that he just came from. He put a dollar bill inside it, because I suppose he wanted it to fulfill it’s purpose as soon as possible. When he got up to sharpen his pencil, I quickly took the dollar out from the box and slipped it under his binder under his desk. When he returned to his desk, he peeked into his wooden box and found it no longer serving its purpose and turned around to ask “who took my dollar?!” I said I don’t have it but I think it is under your binder. Then he said he would punch me after class.
