The school concert

The school was putting on a concert and I was going to open the show at 5:50pm. It was also going to be streamed live on an American TV channel.

I got the bus with Mom and Mike to the school. I was running late, so I ran ahead and just made it on time.

I went in and got my name badge, which was just printed on a piece of paper with a paper clip attached.

I was stood around waiting with the other performers for a while, so 5:50pm couldn’t have been the time the show started.

I didn’t know what song I was going to sing, so when I went out I sang It’s The End Of The World As We Know It by R.E.M.

It went really well, everyone joined in the chorus. The headteacher was a woman and she was dancing around merrily. The lights were flashing and people were dancing. I managed to split the audience for the final chorus so some sang the “It’s the end of the world as we know it” line and some sang the “It’s time I had some time alone” line.
