What’s behind door number ds106?

Last Exit Before DS106

Standing outside the classroom door, I’m a bit nervous about opening it. Thoughts and questions race through my mind.

“What the hell am I thinking? I haven’t got a creative bone in my body. Can I really do this? Will I be able to handle it? I’ve never even been on Twitter before. Besides, I’m on the wrong side of 40. I have kids to feed, responsibilities be be responsible for…”

Lost in thought as I contemplate the door knob, a nearby voice cuts across my uncertainty.

“Go ahead,” it says. “Do it!”

I know that voice.

I look and see the tiny imp – an odd, little version of Ricky Gervais – sitting on my shoulder, grinning up at me, his feet dangling lazily. He leans closer towards me. “Go on. Open it!” he adds. “You know you want to.”

He’s right. I do want to.

And so I do.

      Hopefully, I’m half as smart as the cat is. Thanks for stopping by, Professor.

    Great start! Your writing style is engaging – a solid base. And….I think the right side of 40 myself.
