It all started with my freshman year and a couple of really bored seniors. My band director has a bad temper and every once in a while he’ll make us have a cleanup day where we dust and prim everything and that includes the chalkboard. So a couple of seniors were screwing around and they got some chalk and drew a really simple outline of a fish with a circle around it and the words “Fish Pancake” on the freshly cleaned chalkboard. Our director blew a fuse and spent a good thirty minutes lecturing us on how inappropriate it is and started demanding to know who drew the fish pancake but we didn’t really know so he just erased it and went back to the lesson. The next day we go into class and they drew it again. And again. And again. The fish pancake was not leaving and every time it was redrawn you could tell it was a new person. So every time we clean the board someone discreetly draws a fish pancake on there and it’s been a tradition in my band for four years so as a senior send off me and my friend are planning on leaving our director a nicely wrapped present with a tag that says “With love.” And you know what’ll be inside it? A fish pancake.
