If my life is going to mean anything, I have to live it myself.
All I could think of was that the teachers must've found the illegal stash of candy I'd been selling out of my dorms room. Or maybe they'd realized I got my Essay on Tom Sawyer from the Internet without ever reading the book and now they were going to take away my grade. Or worse, they were going to make me read the book.
Once I got over the fact that my Latin teacher was a horse, we had a nice tour, though I was careful not to walk behind him. I'd done pooper-scooper patrol in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade a few times, and, I'm sorry, I did not trust Chiron's back the the way I trusted his front.
He was slumped over, blood trickling from the side of his mouth. I shook his furry hip, thinking, No! Even if you are half barnyard animal, you're my best friend and I don't want you to die!
The sea does not like to be restrained.
I'm not usually an eavesdropper,but i dare you to try not listening if you hear your best friend talking about you to an adult.
Chiron probably wanted me to say, Heck it wa nothing. I eat hellhounds for breakfast. But I didn't feel like lying.

She'd also called me brave...unless she was talking to the catfish.
Humans see what they want to see.
The wood nymph instructors left me in the dust. They told me not to worry about it. They'd had centuries of practice running away from lovesick gods. But still, it was a little humiliating to be slower than a tree.
It doesn't matter! From waist down, my best friend is a donkey.....
Die,human! Die, silly polluting nasty person!
So few people did good in their lives. It was depressing.
I accidentally vaporize my pre-algebra teacher
We'd just released a zebra in Las Vegas.
It's like I was connected to the plumping system.
Even from far away, I could see people being chased by hellhounds, burned at the stake, forced to run naked through cactus patches or listen to opera music.
Sounds like a plan worthy of Athena.
I gave her my deluxe I'll-Kill-You-Later stare.
What I did next was so impulsive and dangerous I should've been named ADHD poster child of the year.
It's useless to lecture a human.
Even strength must bow to wisdom sometimes.
Sugar and caffeine. My willpower crumbled.
I had weird dreams full of barnyard animals. Most of them wanted to kill me. The rest wanted food.
Where's the glory in repeating what others have done?
