Quandary Resolution 1876
sinopia, corrigendum, boustrophedon, hopscotch
Pacing boustrophedon-wise back and forth along the studio floor, he worked his way gradually from the long wall of windows overlooking the street to the opposite wall (sinopia-stained by generations of grubby adolescent hands), hopscotched over and around the pile of book bags near the door and trudged methodically back towards the windows again, rehearsing what he might say to the Headmaster about the flippant corrigendum he had made to the posted list of English marks (to which he had neatly added the English teacher's name in last place).
