In the beginning, Nate has a dream that he’s in school and that he has to answer a question and he doesn’t know what the answer is to the question, so he just finds an excuse for not doing it. And then the bell rings. But then it’s really long, not like a school bell but an alarm bell. And then Nate wakes up and turns the alarm off and puts the covers back on and goes to sleep again.
And then his dad comes and says, “Time to go to school.” And then Nate is snoring. Then his dad nabs the blanket and then Nate wakes up and then he goes to eat breakfast. And then his dad says that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. (Is breakfast really the most important meal of the day?)
Middle: Nate goes to school and he gets a whole bunch of detention slips. He also forgot his lunch since he was in such a hurry and then he only got a fortune cookie. But the fortune was “today you will surpass all others.” Then he got really excited about that. And then he tries a whole bunch of things to surpass all others. And then when he tries to set a world record for speed eating, he ends up with a really sick stomach.
At the end, Nate turns in all his detention slips and he got a detention slip in every single class. Not only did he get all those detention slips but he also got one from the principal. (Uh oh!) and then he sets a new record for getting the most detention slips. The moral of the story is never try to skip school. There will always be a consequence.
Nate did surpass all others by getting the most detention slips that a student has ever gotten.
