Mrs Prince said that we had to do one extra bit of homework on Tuesday but she promised it wouldn't be hard. We had to bring in a question for someone in the class and instead of ‘Nuacht’ or ‘Our News’ we would have a Question Time. I knew that I wanted to ask Iris a question. She is my best friend and I know everything about her but I didn't want to ask anyone else.
On Wednesday morning I went to school and I had my question written in my copy, but Iris wasn't in. I told Mrs Prince and she said that I had to think of someone else to ask a question. Mrs Prince said that she was supposed to be last but that I could go last instead. Mine was for Iris and was about her Dad, Kevin. So I had to pick a new question as well as a new person. I didn't know who to pick or what to ask.
Everyone took turns asking questions. I can't remember them all but I remember some.
Mary Kelly asked Aoife McDermott what her Da did as a job. She said he worked in town in a big factory. He makes sure all the machines are working properly and fixes them if something goes wrong.
Rita Jones asked Debbie Molloy if she had a boyfriend. She said yeah and that it was my brother Jim and we all went 'yeuuuuuuch!' I said it the loudest.
Debbie Molloy asked Mary Saunders what her favourite dinner was. She said it was Christmas dinner with everything on it – including sprouts. More yeuuuuuuchs!
Rose Mullins asked Mary Kelly where she went on holidays last year. She said that she didn’t go on holidays last year because her Mammy had a baby, but this year they might go to see her Aunty in England on a boat.
Siobhan Rafferty asked Mrs Prince if she had any kids and she said no and then she smiled and said, “Well... not yet.”
Mrs Prince asked me what I wanted to be when I grow up. As soon as she asked me I knew what the answer was.
“I want to be a teacher Miss, just like you.”
“That's great Lizzy. I think you'd be a great teacher. Now it's your turn. You can ask me a question because Iris isn't in today. What is your question? “
“How much do teachers get paid Miss?”
Mrs Prince opened her mouth then she closed her mouth. Then she opened her mouth again and closed it again. She took a deep breath and we all looked at her and she said…
“It’s time for Geography now girls, that’s enough of the questions.”
