2.) But teachers know everything!! Write about a time a teacher disappointed you.
My mistress' eyes are nothing like the sun;
Coral is far more red than her lips' red;
If snow be white, why then her breasts are dun;
If hairs be wires, black wires grow on her head.
I have seen roses damask'd, red and white,
But no such roses see I in her cheeks;
And in some perfumes is there more delight
Than in the breath that from my mistress reeks.
I love to hear her speak, yet well I know
That music hath a far more pleasing sound;
I grant I never saw a goddess go;
My mistress, when she walks, treads on the ground:
And yet, by heaven, I think my love as rare
As any she belied with false compare.
was about a man who was trapped within his own self loathing because of a "fatal attraction" to a woman who was less than beautiful, in fact, she was ugly, and smelly, and altogether not good enough for him, which would, ultimately lead to murder.

Clearly, I was mistaken.
My disappointment was absolutely sealed at the end of the year, when his last assignment was that we watch a movie of our choice, and write about all the Atheist/Anarchy symbolism, which, according to him, was the nature of man and thus lay in everything we create.
My essay was a 5 page bunch of bovine excrement about Mandy Moore's movie "A Walk To Remember."
Of course, if you've seen the movie, you'll be able to imagine that my intentions were completely satirical. But he was too dumb to see it.
It was the only paper in that class that I received an A on.
