3 Times

Writing Challenge: Oct 12, 2017

Prompt: Write about a time you’ve had to repeat yourself or felt like no one was listening.

“Your Midterm research paper should be 5 pages, double-spaced, in MLA style format. It should include 2 sources, and is due on the 15th of October.”

“When is this due?” Asks Celeste.

“The 15th of October.”

“How many pages?” Inquires Jerome.


“Single or double spaced?” Pipes in Tyler.

“Double-spaced.” Mr. Whitley sighs.

“Do we need any sources?”

“Is it in MLA?”

“Wait, you said the 15th of October?”

Mr. Whitley pinched the bridge of his nose and closed his eyes as if he had a headache. He suddenly recalled a saying he heard often in college: “You can tell someone is a teacher because they always repeat themselves 3 times.”
