miscreant. THE AP read from a referral paper, "Your teacher says you are not doing your work. Is this true?"
AP: It's not true? Is your teacher lying?
AP: Oh really? Well it says here that you went over and took a juice box without permission and you started drinking it when you were supposed to be working. Is that true?
AP: No? Your teacher's lying about the juice box?
M: Yes. She's lying.
I couldn't stay to find out if AP was able to break Miscreant down but what a charming hilarious scene. Miscreant was sticking to her guns. And her stoicism filled me with glee. I repeated my sankalpa several times today before I got cheered up by Miscreant. Like Miscreant, I was getting pretty rigid in my thinking on a few topics of late. So that's pretty good that I recited my sankalpa and overcame my rigidity and acted fairly maturely for the rest of the afternoon.
