I got Bunhead's attention, but the girl never even noticed me.




A story told at the 92nd Street Y in New York City for The Story Collider. It's the story of the pranks I played on my aged high school science teacher in order to impress a girl. The girl never noticed me, but the teacher was one step ahead of me the whole time and taught me an important lesson about the nature of discipline, the importance of kindness and the value of a second chance. As a teacher today, it was one of the most important lessons I ever learned.
