Distraction

Standing in front of the class, white

board marker in hand, he unconsciously

smells it.  The alcohol vapor enters his body.

For a moment….just a moment, he is transported

to another place, where questions are witty and

smart and challenging instead of the same old tired

wonderings. He does not notice the multi-colored

marks on his nose.
