Purchasing Punctuation

A couple weeks ago, our school had a visitor. She had moved here from England and was hanging out in Amanda's 5th grade classroom to see what it would be like to attend our school. Apparently visitors like that are called a Shadow.

Amanda: The Shadow was so funny today.

Me: Oh yeah?

Yeah. One of the girls was going on and on and on about something, like she always does. You know, not even stopping to take a breath. Finally the Shadow said, 'Would you like to buy a period?'

Me: That's awesome.

Amanda: I know, right?

Me: I'm totally gonna' use that.

Of course, it probably won't be as funny without the accent, but still.
