There have been some mysterious rumors circling around lately about an amazing event. Two Fridays ago, most of the seventh grade (including me) was mysteriously NOT HUNGRY for lunch!!! This shocking phenomenon was observed and commented on by an anonymous contact, who seems to think that Mr. Bradley was the main cause of this sudden case of satiation. On Friday, the whole seventh grade participated in Mercantilism Day during history class, which is right before lunch. Everyone was to bring in a product to trade or barter with. (Those who didn’t bring in an item got to be slaves.) Food was definitely the main product, of course. When would it not be? There were cookies, donuts, candy, jelly beans, and the famous Party in a Cone, which was a stunning hit.
Everyone traded well, and people got lots of food! There were a few stingy traders, however. Ellie, naming no names, was generously offering one Rollo for two cookies!! Harrumph!! All of the slaves (except two) were sold, with Mr. Bradley acting as the slave trader. I think that the seventh graders all had lots of fun, though poor Mrs. Zillinger had to deal with the sugar crazy kids all afternoon. It was an awesome experience, and Mr. Bradley should definitely do it again next year! Thanks for reading!
