Jael is hugely based on my bff from high school, who I met as a freshman but didn’t really get to know until we were the only two juniors in our gym class for some reason. But somehow I have a penchant for befriending exactly this kid from your high school, because a lot of friends have told me their fighting with teacher stories.

I would totally write more about this, but I’ve been working overtime on a new project that is due soon. But anyone with a good story about a verbal joust with a teacher, I would love to hear it.
