Matt Striker's Word of the Week for 03/13/07
Hello, my students. Today, I would like to introduce the word: retrospect. We can break it down. Of course retro means "in the past."
"Hello, Melina. How are you?" She just passed by, but that's p-a-s-s-e-d, not past.
Moving right along, retrospect would be the Word of the Week. In retrospect, I look back on my days as a boy growing up in parts unknown and I remember that I had friends in school who reminded me of the ECW Originals. Of course, there was one boy who reminded me of Sandman. He would constantly run up to me in the halls and pound his head with a juice box. I believe it was a CapriSun or a Ssips, but I'm not really sure.
In retrospect, one has to look back at these young men and think how they must have grown up. Also in retrospect, we have to take into consideration that at one time, the ECW Originals were just like the New Breed: cocky, brash, but with one exception. They were not as talented.
So the Word of the Week for you, my students, is retrospect. Feel free to e-mail me, the E, of course, standing for "electronic," and give me your stories or anecdotes about things in retrospect that you remember. Perhaps there was a boy in your school. Maybe a Vasillios Zatse or a Jason Gatsoni, the boy who sat next to me in my third grade class. Feel free to tell me these stories and of course, I will pick a winner and send you this week a giant pencil because as we all know, you can never have enough lead.
That's my lesson from me to you, Matt Striker, your teacher.
