Broken glass! Why broken glass? How the hell can I write a project on broken glass?

But your message came through in time--I have to thank you for that. So when Ms Rubenach came round (at the exact time I had predicted) I shrugged my shoulders (my right shoulder, actually--my left shoulder is still sore from when I fell on it in the gym) and typed <broken glass>.

Ms Rubenach looked at me for a moment with her nose wriggled up and her left eye closed and her right eyebrow raised (which is her 'AND-YOU-

THINK- I'M-WEIRD?!' look). Then she controlled herself and said, 'Oh, that's great, Axel. I'll be fascinated to see what you come up with.' Et cetera. And... 'Now, if you need any help...'

I shrugged my shoulder again. I mean, I couldn't exactly ask for help when I hadn't the faintest idea what I was going to do.

So it's over to you, Sachie. Please send me a few ideas about what I can write about broken glass. I mean, it's only fair.

Your bozo friend
