Everyone is sitting Indian style, chatting with their neighbors, but not you.
You flash a firm peace sign as high as your right arm will take it while angrily locking eyes with your teacher on stage.
It meant you were ready, and was a silent but expressive SHUT THE HELL UP to everyone else around you.
Just as you begin to discover new shoulder muscles, your classmates take notice and buckle under your sign’s power.
Peace. The original gang sign.
