Corky slung his knapsack over one shoulder, just like all the normal kids.

He grabbed the brown bag from the countertop and walked out the kitchen door. On his way to the bus stop, he opened the bag: yes! Mom had remembered to pack a Ham 'n Cheese Lunchables, just like all the normal kids had. Just because he was slow, that didn't mean he couldn't eat the same stuff as normal kids.

At the bus stop, Corky was all alone. Where were the other kids? He waited and waited. Then he remembered. Oh no! It was daylight savings, and he had forgotten to "Spring Forward". Oh no! He'd have to take the regular city bus, and by the time he got to school, he'd still be late!

He opened the door to his third period class at 10:10, 20 minutes late!

Miss Postfontaine turned from the blackboard. "Corky, you're tardy again."

"More like re-tardy," said Donny Varsity, who was always mean.

The class burst into unanimous laughter. Corky cried and cried.

01/14/2004 Dylan Danko: Disney, my comment below was meant to throw you off. The retarded boy is obviously me.
01/14/2004 Will Disney: Well, obviously it didn't work because I knew !
01/17/2004 scoop (5): I am intrigued by the latent numerology - 10:10. 20 minutes. 10+10=20. it reminds me of the mystery Torah, or maybe just money...
02/28/2005 TheBuyer (5): Hey, bless you random feature, bless the fuck out of you.
04/28/2009 anonymous: is this the one where they sent the kid home with a turd in his lunch sack?
