Though Connie loves her work, and her students, the past few days have been hectic. It’s time for mid-term exams at school, and she needs to get her test questions written. Mrs Davis awakens the overworked Miss Brooks. After a dose of a special breakfast, and a joke about horses that sets the tone of the day, Connie is off to school.
The silver tongued Walter Denton tries to butter up Miss Brooks, but ends up dragging out a comparrison to being an old tired horse.
Hey check out those sponsor’s prizes. I can’t compete, but for any tips made to the PayPal Tip jar over $50, I’ll burn off a DVD of all the shows I’ve posted since last April. Plus whatever I can squeeze onto it.
Harriet talks to her dad, Mr Conklin. She’s concerned that Miss Brooks is working too hard, and wants to do something for her. When Harriet speaks with Miss Brooks, the allusions to her waning beauty, and comparrisons to horses continues. Mr Conklin talks to Connie in his office, the horse comments keep up, but we begin to discover that her friends really have her interests at heart. Conklin tries to get her focused on outside interests, and hobbies.
At lunch, Mr Boynton even shows a concern over Connie’s well being, but the horse comments don’t help. All her friends drop hints at her needing other hobbies. Back home, Miss Brooks needs to get her work caught up, but Mrs Davis tries to teach Connie to knit instead.
Connie’s friends all try to help her relax, but the hobby overload has a reverse affect. Will she ever get her test questions written?
