Spoiler: This is about Romeo and Juliet…but not really.
Solid chair. Uncomfortable chair. I look around. Stupid. Stupid. Stupid. How did you even get in here?
These thoughts cross my mind every day in AP Lang. Seriously, do they not have placement tests anymore?
That’s not the point of this though. The point is that all the while my slender, giggly English teacher was teaching a worthy lesson, my mind kept relating everything around me to Romeo & Juliet. Why? Well, why not?
Why did Romeo and Juliet never pass notes? That’s how all the hip high school couples get started, and it seems to work for them and all the good 80’s movies. It would have been at least a million times easier to just write what they feel on pieces of paper and have them delivered. True, that would leave evidence of their love, but hand-written notes are about as romantic as it gets.
Take some lessons, Romeo:
Pack our bags.
Pack your bags
For a night without you by my side,
Would be a hell I have no desire to see
Pack my bags
For I shall endure hell to be by thine side
Side by side, we shall be
Forevermore you and me.
