Day 33: Hiya, Biff!
So in 10th grade, we were reading Death of a Salesman and Jon Gandomi was playing the part of Happy Loman, who frequently greets his brother with "Hiya, Biff!" Jon apparently wasn't paying attention to the context of the sentence in the first reading and ended up saying "Hi-YA, Biff!" (as in karate chop hi-ya, not friendly greeting) Therefore, every time any of the characters said "Hiya!" (which, in Death of a Salesman, is a LOT) everyone would yell it like a karate war-cry, making the death of this particular salesman gruesome and brutal. It was awesome. Mr. McLellan the teacher was not (outwardly) amused. (But most likely inwardly cause he was a pretty cool teacher.)
That said...wait, where was I going with this?
