Nah to the ah to the no no no [Affects everyone]

Georgia had had her share of crappy years. There had been her parents’ messy divorce. There had been her best friend quitting school. And she had really thought things were starting to get better for her but it seemed like there was some kind of force in the universe that was just determined that she should constantly get screwed over. This year was just one huge, chaotic mess. Jozua was being a walking disaster area, and had somehow got her dragged into it all, plus whoever else there was who’d decided to turn Skies’ hair pink and get them all yelled at. On top of that, there was still the ball at the end of the year. If the school was still standing by that point.

The poo icing on the crap cake came in Potions, when Professor O’Malley mentioned one of her least favourite words in the world. Mathematical. Urgh. She hated math so much she’d once made all the pens in her elementary school vanish in order to escape a lesson on adding decimals. She hadn’t known at the time she was a witch, although she had felt responsible and tried to apologise to her teacher, Mr. Mayhew, who, of course, had not believed that she’d done anything wrong. Escaping from ever having to do math again had been one of the greatest things about coming to a magical school. And now… here it was. Threatening to ruin her day. She had no idea how one would even go about working out a formula.

She examined her frog, which was about the size of a thimble. She guessed he needed some…. Grow potion, or whatever it was called. She was distracted from administering it by a loud bang, and turned to see - oh, of course it was Lily. What were she and Jozua playing at this year? Georgia turned her attention back to her froggle, wanting to avoid any kind of involvement in the scene. Ok. So… she should drop some potion on her frogling, and count how many drops and write it down so that she could be revealed to be embarrassingly thick later. Great.

“I guess just… try one drop at a time, and keep a tally?” she asked her partner. She rummaged in her bag for a quill, so she could take notes. And kept rummaging. Where was it? “Do you have a quill?” she asked, giving up. “I guess I left mine somewhere…” she mused, trying to remember which class she’d last used it in. But her partner would probably find they had difficulty locating a quill too. As would their neighbours. As would the whole class.

OOC - the original incident for anyone who is interested.
