Daily Prompt : Proclivity

In response to one-word Prompt  :  Proclivity

I have a proclivity to watch children whom I teach,

One thing I noticed they  have their likes and dislikes.

One year I noticed a girl assigned to me hated school,

I told the principal, ‘I think I’ll have problems with her.”

He looked at me in awe,  ‘but you didn’t start teaching yet,’

‘I know,’ I said,  ‘my sixth sense alerts me she’d give me trouble.’

He advised me to see her parents, he said,  ‘they will cooperate.’

I saw the parents, talked to them, they smiled and looked at each other.

This is what they said, ‘We are surprised, because it’s true,

she really hates school!’

  1. Dear Ranu,

    Thank you for this nice story.

    Like the young girl in your story, I disliked school. Once in college, though, I loved all the learning!

    All good wishes,


    • Dear Robert,
      Thank you at least you started liking it.
      I skipped school when I couldn’t complete my homework
      and made some lame excuse of a headache.
      My Dad didn’t question my motive, but my
      older sister used to yell and tell Dad
      he was spoiling me! 🙂

  2. Thans for sharing 🙂 It is amazing how our sixth sense informs us sometimes. The parents must have been really surprised.
