Once in grade 3 I accidentally called my teacher mom and the whole class started laughing at me. For the next couple weeks a boy teased me about it everyday. Then one day we had a spelling test and the teacher gave me bonus marks and the boy asked why the rest of the class didn’t get them. My teacher looked him straight in the eyes and said
before i start i just wanted to say that this happened years before (2009) steven universe aired which adds the the surreal nature of this.
okay so when i was in second grade i had this next door neighbor with a boy my age and a girl 2 years older than me. we liked the hang out at their house a lot and it was all good. so one day we’re hanging out in the older girl, nicole’s, room. she says to me and her brother “guys i have something really important to tell you” and we’re like “lol okay what is it”. so she takes an amethyst geode from her nightstand and is like “this is me”. me and her brother are so goddamn confused and we’re just like “please explain”. so nicole says “i was walking in the train tracks (gurl why) and i found this piece of amethyst lying there. i felt bad for it since it might get run over by a train. after that i realized that im actually an amethyst”. we were still so confused and i was like “um i’m pretty sure you’re just a person” and she was like “oh no, this geode is actually my ”“true heart”“”. so being the naïve 7 year old i was, i was like OF COURSE THAT MAKES PERFECT SENSE. so then our girl nicole says “my name isn’t nicole. it’s actually amethyst, but you can call me amy for short”. i kinda just spent like the next 3 years believing that my next door neighbor was the incarnation of a fuckin rock until i looked back at it when i went to middle school. so around the time steven universe comes out i’m just like “nicole you motherfucker where are you” so now every time i watch steven universe i always think of this girl
