Notable Quote from Bumbling Bea


BB chapter 5.jpg

Michiko slapped her script and blurted,” Ms. Phillips this script is inaccurate.  This is a mistake. Pocahontas did not wear any clothes when John Smith met her. She was naked.”

The whole cast broke out in fits of laughter. The fifth graders were no longer bored and several turned bright red in the face. Peter’s eyes were about the size of a Frisbee when he choked out, “What?”

Ms.Phillips shushed the cast, “Yes, I know, Michiko.  But I don’t think that would go over very well in a middle school. Sometimes we have to bend the facts of history just a little to make it theatre friendly and acceptable to the public.

I heard Peter mutter, “Oh man. That was close for a second.”
