Chicken Soul Soup: The Dead Horse

In which Sheila and her student wish for progress in education and debate the sharing of sharp weapons.

Student: The topic for the essay is whether social media is good or bad for teenagers. Yawn.

Sheila: Don’t hand me a simple bad or good. Don’t bore me.

Student: What should I say?

Sheila: The topic is a dead horse: stop allowing it to be beaten. Find a knife, slice the meat up and serve it around. Make that dead thing useful.

Student: Have you got a knife in your arsenal? Share it?

Sheila: Git your own knife. I ain’t sharin’.
