My Paper is Epic
K: What makes it epic?
Z: It has 5 paragraphs.
K: The length makes it epic?
Z: No. I explained everything I said. I even ended with a Bible quote.
K: You know a Bible quote?
K looks incredulously. K & Z go to church, but she wasn’t sure he heard anything.
Z: Well, I didn’t really know it was from the Bible. Wikipedia told me.
K: Uh, you went to Wikipedia for a Bible quote?
Z: No. I just googled “The truth shall set you free” and it took me to Wikipedia. It’s in the Bible. In John I think.
K, who is sitting under a hair dryer so she cannot go to the computer to verify all of this, decides it’s best to just nod in agreement.
Z: Let’s put it this way. The paper sounds like a real author wrote it. Maybe all that reading is paying off. I started to wait until the last minute to do this paper.
K is thinking, you did.
K: Are you going to enter the contest?
Z: I don’t know. Teacher says it’s optional. She says it should probably have a title if you submit it.
K: Since it’s epic, you should submit it. A title is the easy part.
Z: I can’t think of anything. “Honesty is Key” ?
K: Maybe. There is an obvious one (title).
Z: “The Truth Shall Set You Free”?
Z: My paper is epic.
K doesn’t know if she buys this epic business.
K: Read the paper to me then.
Z changes the subject to science.
K continues to wait for the conditioner to soften her hair.
