Sometimes I elaborate on stories to make them seem more interesting, but I swear this really happened today. SWEAR ON THE GRAVE OF HITCHCOCK, this really happened.
We're doing a "haunting tales" unit in English and today we started to read "The Raven" by Edgar Allen Poe. If you haven't read it, it features a black raven. My teacher was asking if there was anyone in the class who was afraid of birds, and one girl mentioned the Hitchcock movie. There were a few exchanges about it, and the kid next to me I SWEAR said this.
"Do they even speak in that movie?"
I kind of let out a weird snort/laugh thing, and tried to keep from bursting out laughing. My teacher;
"Yes John, it's not THAT old."
Needless to say, the second it happened I knew I had to blog about it!
