Scene from a Classroom
a short story by Lee Duane FitzSimmons
"Okay, children," the teacher said. "Please turn your textbooks to page 236. Today, we shall be studying the ancient devices known as warcloths." The children obeyed and hastily followed their teacher's instructions. "These devices were used by the primitive cultures of the 21st century," she explained. "They were used to elicit emotion from the more animalistic portion of the human essence."
"My father collects these," said Jenny, a student in the class. "He has hundreds of them in our basement."
"That's right, Jenny," the teacher responded. "These devices are very valuable to many antique dealers and collectors all over the world because they have not been used for many centuries," she then dimmed the lights and turned on the three-dimensional hologram projector. The class then watched a visual presentation entitled "The History of the Warcloth."
After the documentary was over, the teacher asked her students, "So are there any questions?"
Jimmy raised his hand and asked, "So what were these devices called when they were still being used?"
"Flags," the teacher answered. "They were called flags."
