Today, just when Jesse was feeling really bored and sassy, he got a call from his teacher. She said "Thank you for the fortune cookie." Then all 30-ish of his class mates passed the phone around and thanked him for the fortune cookie, and all together they told him goodbye. They had planned on waiting until Jesse came back to eat the fortune cookies, but a week and a half is a long time for non-commercial, non-sealed baked goods to wait around.
After the call he was ready to sit down and work on some of his homework.
