It was Mr. White’s least favorite day: picture day.
After lining the class up according to height, handing each student their identification card for the photographer, and getting them to the cafeteria with their outfits and hair in pristine condition, Mr. White felt somewhat relieved.

Last year, Trevin wasn’t smile, so his parents filed a complaint at the district office; Mr. White wanted to avoid a similar issue.
Just as the class was ready for a long drawn out “cheeeeeeese,” Daniel turned his back to the camera. Mr. White’s head nearly exploded.
