I Was That Kid

When I was in high school, I wrote a short story about a superhero named Bedlam who had tentacles in his arms and killed a criminal by impaling him on an iron fence. Not my best effort, but my creative writing teacher really liked it, because it was descriptive and imaginative.

I sure am glad I don't go to high school these days, where they arrest kids for writing stories about their schools being attacked by zombies. Apparently no one got the irony.

"Mmm... Must punish creativity... Must eat brain...."
