R.O.O.M. - Part 1- Wake-Up Call
– Good Morning Bobby. It is 7:30 in the morning, November 3, 2572. Time to get up. –
Bobby rolled over in bed, hugged his teddy bear, dozed and went back to sleep.
– Good Morning Bobby. It is 7:35 in the morning, November 3, 2572. It is time to get up. –
Bobby felt his bed rumble this time and the lights in the room were starting to slowly increase illumination. He hugged his teddy and dozed off to sleep.
– Good Morning Bobby. It is 7:40 TUESDAY morning, November 3, 2572. You have school today Bobby and MUST get up. I am sorry for this Bobby, but you must get up for school. –
The top sheet and blanket suddenly disappeared leaving Bobby and his teddy bear very cold and now very awake. “Okay, Okay ROOM, I am up. You did not have to do that. I hate it when you do that.”
– Then on school days, actually get up when I tell you it is time. –
Bobby looked around the room and at the clock. “ROOM,” he commanded. “Make bed.”
– I am sorry Bobby. Your Mom has given me strict instructions after last time that you no longer have access to that command within one hour of when you are woken up. Nice try Bobby, but you are not getting your sheet and blanket back that easily. –
“Well ROOM, I had to try.” Bobby smiled as he climbed out of bed, resting his teddy on the pillow. “Sorry Teddy, ROOM will not let you go back to sleep either.”
– Teddy can go back to sleep, just not you –
Bobby saw a teddy size blanket appear on top of his Teddy Bear. “Well at least one of us will get to sleep in.” Bobby smiled as he headed over to the dresser. Stepping on the platform and holding onto the bars, he was engulfed in light.
– School Clothes – Outside temps 50 to 70 degrees Fahrenheit – Inside Temps 68 to 75 – Mood Hormone Rating: 35 – Bright and cheerful mood today Bobby, so bright and cheerful clothes it will be –
Bobby’s pajamas and underwear were transported away as he felt a warm tingling feeling all over his body. A ruffling of his hair indicated the finish of the cleaning phase. He looked around as the next thing he heard were beeps and clicks instead of his clothes appearing. “ROOM? ? ROOM? ?”
– Processing, Please Hold –
Bobby felt silly standing there naked holding on to the dresser bars. He could not recall ever having to wait for ROOM to do something. A second later he saw his bed disappear and Teddy re-appear on shelf in a nice Teddy Bear sized bed. Then he heard more clicks and beeps.
– Daytime room setting set – dressing in process, in process, in process. Bright Cheerful school clothes – Processing, Please Hold –
Bobby heard more beeps and clicks. Confused, he was tempted to call Mom for help, but he was naked. At 12 years old, his mom hadn’t seen him naked for years, and until there was really a problem, he wasn’t ready to have her come in. ROOM clicked and beeped some more and then the cleaning phase started again, except this time it didn’t end with the hair, it went back down the body and ended just below his waist. It was different, yet somehow familiar. Bobby didn’t have time to think about it for clothes were instantly transported onto him.
“Finally ROOM, what was all of that about?”
– Processing, Processing, Please Hold –
“Mom,” Bobby yelled. “Mom come quick. ROOM isn’t working right.”
“What is it Bobby,” She said entering the room and then froze. “Umm, Cute Bobby, but I don’t exactly think those clothes are appropriate for Junior High. Preschool maybe, but not Junior High.”
Bobby was puzzled and then looked down at his clothes. Primary green overalls with a dump truck on the bib and snaps down the legs, a primary yellow shirt, white little kid no-remove sneakers with yellow highlights and blue light and move dump trucks on the sides.
“Oh don’t worry Bobby, I am sure we can fix your dresser and get you changed out of those little kid clothes in no time at all.” She said with a smile on her face. “But to be honest, I forgot how cute you looked in diapers.”
“Diapers!” Bobby pulled the front of the bib overalls forward to look down inside. “Mommyyyyyyyyyyyy”
Part 2 - Diapers
Bobby was in shock. Here he was 12 years old, dressed like a Preschooler. Complete with DIAPERS. Mommy could fix everything, RIGHT ? ? ?
“Mom, hurry up and fix the Dresser. I gatta go.”
“Bobby, there is no rush, school doesn’t start for an hour.”
“No Mom, I gatta go. I haven’t been to the bathroom yet this morning.”
His mom smiled, her baby boy looked like he was a tall 5 year old, and now he wants to go potty like a big boy. Good thing his diaper is on in case he doesn’t make it. Her smile widened. “Well Bobby, it may have been 6 years since I last did this, but I do think I remember how to take a diaper off a kid. I can get the diaper off so you can go potty.”
“Potty! Mom! I am not a little Kindergartener being toilet trained. Just fix the Dresser so I can change and then go to the bathroom.”
“Bobby, I don’t know how to fix the dresser. I can try putting it in a diagnostic mode and reboot the system, but that could take up to 30 minutes. After dealing with 6 years of you in diapers, I think I can at least get it off so you can go Potty. Oh, sorry, go to the bathroom.”
Bobby was starting to really feel the pressure and had to go bad. “Okay Mom.”
“ROOM, Bobby’s bed please.”
– Processing, Please wait –
“Now that is interesting.” His mom said while looking over at ROOM’s display screen on the wall and listened to the clicks and beeps.
– Bobby’s bed. Can I help you with anything else? –
They both turned to where the bed should be and saw a bed appear in the spot with Teddy appearing on the pillow.
“MOOOOOMMMMMMMM” Bobby was on the verge of tears.
Trying to hold back a giggle, “Well Bobby, ROOM gave you a bed appropriate for the way you are dressed.”
“A BED! It is not a bed, it is a CRIB!”
“Well, for a kid in diapers, it is the appropriate bed. You slept in a crib till they started Potty Training lessons half way through Kindergarten.”
“Mom, I’m 12 not 5, and I have to go to the bathroom. Do you mind?”
“Sorry, Bobby. ROOM, Changing Table please, big enough for Bobby.”
– One changing table for little Bobby –
A set of shelves in the room dematerialized and a changing table materialized in its place. A collection of various supplies appeared underneath and a few on a small shelf above.
“Lay down Bobby, so I can get the diaper off.”
Bobby slowly walked over to the changing table and reluctantly sat down on the table. He then looked at his mom before laying down.
The fasteners down the legs were undone exposing the diaper. “Oh no.”
“Oh NO! What do you mean OH NO!”
“Well, Bobby, you are dressed in a no-release Preschool Diaper.”
“It’s a Diaper! There has to be a way to get it off!”
“Only one sweety, but if ROOM is malfunctioning, I am not sure this will work sweety. The changing table Links-Up with ROOM. I hope this works. ROOM, change diaper, switch to training pants.”
“MOM! Training Pants”
– That is not advised. Scans reveal the diaper is dry and clean and Bobby will be using them VERY soon. His bowels and bladder are full. –
“Bobby, this is a changing table, underwear is not in its programming. ROOM, Bobby has asked to go potty like a big boy. Please switch the diaper for training pants.”
– Processing, Please Wait – Processing, Please Wait – Processing, Please Wait –
The table lights up around Bobby’s diaper area and the diaper dematerializes. A Cleansing scan goes over the area and then a new no-release Preschool Diaper materializes on Bobby.
“I am sorry Bobby.”
“Sorry, Sorry! What do you mean sorry. Mooooommmmm.”
“It’s okay Bobby, it’s okay.” Instinctively she reached up and got a pacifier and started bringing it toward his mouth.
“Mom! I AM NOT A BABY.”
“Sorry sweety. I wasn’t thinking. When you were upset during a change, I would always give you a pacifier and it would calm you right down. I wasn’t thinking. I was just trying to calm my baby boy while on the changing table. Sorry sweety.”
“What are we going to do? I’ve gatta go to the bathroom and I can’t go to school like this.”
“Let’s think. If your dresser isn’t working, what are our options? My dresser will not work for little kids and until you go through another growth spurt, you are still too little for it.”
“What about Janie’s dresser? She has a kid dresser. I could use it, couldn’t I?”
“You can use Janie’s dresser if you want, but it only has little girl clothes in it and she has insisted on wearing only dresses for several years now. I think you are better off with what you have on, but I bet you would look cute in pig-tails and a frilly little party dress.”
“Okay, but how can I get out of these clothes?”
“We really need to find a dresser that is calibrated for you or one set up generically for youth boys. Anything else will try to Link-Up with your personal Dresser.”
“Whatever you do Mom, do it quick. I really gatta go potty.”
Smiling at him calling it Potty instead of a bathroom, she was thinking hard. Dressers calibrated for Bobby or ones programmed for generic youth boys. “I’ve got it Bobby!”
“You can go to school and use the dresser in the locker room.”
R.O.O.M. - Part 3 - School
“Are you nuts? I can’t go to school dressed like this.”
“You know the rule, you either attend school in person or through Holo Link-Up. Do you really want a Holographic you hovering around the school dressed like that?”
“If you leave now, you will probably only run into teachers in the halls.”
“I don’t want teachers seeing me like this!”
“Would you like it better with all your friends seeing you dressed like that?”
“Okay, but this better work. I am not sure how much longer I can hold out.”
“You could just go in the diaper. It will not make a mess, and I could change you before you head off to school.”
“OOOOO, Gross Mom. Are you nuts?”
They both headed for the transporter in the Greeting Room. As they walked through the living room, Janie saw her big brother, “Oh Mommy, you got me a baby brother. Oh thank you Mommy, I’ve always wanted one.”
“Janie, if you say another word your Dad and I will program your dresser to dress you in Preschool outfits for a whole week. Bobby’s Dresser is broken. Now, go eat breakfast before it is time for you to leave for school.”
Bobby hugged his mom as they continued toward the Greeting Room.
“Now Bobby, Go to school. Change your clothes. Go Potty, and then come back home.”
“Okay Mom.” Bobby said getting onto the transporter.
“TRANSPORT, Bobby to school.”
The Transporter lit up and Bobby dematerialized. His Mom smiled, wishing she had had more time with her baby boy. Her thoughts were interrupted by HOUSE:
– Transport complete. Bobby has successfully arrived at Gleeful Times Nursery School. –
– Transport complete. Welcome Bobby to Gleeful Times Nursery School. –
“What?” Bobby’s shock was too much, his bladder let go, and with this action, he started to cry.
“Everything will be okay little Bobby. Oh, now I see what your problem is, you need your diaper changed. It must of just happened, your truck is just now losing its color. Come with me little one, we will get you all cleaned up and into some nice clean diapers.”
The young lady in the Greeting Room, Carly, took Bobby’s hand and led him to the Changing Room. She knew Bobby was too old to be in Preschool and still in diapers, but she also knew that a crying little boy transported in and promptly wet and/or messed his diapers. He may be too old for such things, but he obviously still needed to be wearing a diaper. His Mommy must also agree or she would never have dressed him this way and sent him to Preschool. Once she got him changed, she would check the computer records to get more information on Bobby.
“Truck?” Bobby said in confusion and through the tears.
“It’s okay Bobby, the truck on your overalls will get its color back when we get you into a nice clean diaper.”
“Truck, not - truck?” Bobby was really confused, too much was happening at once. What was she talking about a truck? He looked down at his green overalls and the now white truck on the bib. It wasn’t white this morning, was it? “Truck - no color? No!”
“It is okay Bobby. We will just get you changed into clean diapers and the color will come back. It’s okay. Just let Carly take care of everything for you. It’s okay.”
Carly thought that he was upset because the truck had changed. She knew a lot of Mommies that pushed little ones to keep the truck from loosing its color. To her, Bobby was clearly upset by the truck losing its color. She was guessing that Bobby was maybe 9 or 10 years old. He was acting however, like the 5 year olds whose parents started toilet training before they were ready.
Carly could not calm Bobby down. When they reached the Changing Room he was laid down on the large changing table and the table evaluated the situation, while Carly followed a hunch and put a pacifier in his mouth.
– Boy – No-Release Preschool Diaper – very wet and needs changing – Clothes are still dry and clean – Bladder is not completely empty, child has some level of bladder control – Bowels are full beyond levels of normal retention, normal constipated diapered child procedures will be initiated when diaper is changed – Should I proceed? –
Bobby was starting to calm down as he sucked on the pacifier. He put up a feeble protest when Carly when to undo the fasteners down his legs, but he was too overwhelmed and defeated to fight. He was laying there on a Preschoolers Changing Table with a wet diaper. This strange lady knew he was wet and needed to poop. He was supposed to quickly get to the school’s locker room and change, but he wasn’t at school. Well, he was at school. He wasn’t at his school. He could try to get to this school’s locker rooms, no, this is a Preschool, they do not have locker rooms. What was he going to do? How did this happen? How could he get out of here?
When Carly had Bobby’s diaper exposed, she said, “Initiate Change”
– Changing Diaper, replacing with same - Preschool No-Release Diaper, with No-Control Youth level protection – Adding Constipation relief medicine to intestines – Recommend a level 5 Preschooler Breakfast to help the process –
“Your Dump Truck has its color back Bobby. If you don’t tell Mommy it lost its color, I won’t. Well, it looks like it is off to breakfast for you.” Carly said as she started doing back up the fasteners on the overalls.
“Carly,” A lady entering the room asked. “Is that a Young Man named Bobby?”
“Young Man?” Carly inquired looking down at the pacifier and the diaper that had just been changed. “This is Bobby, but I wouldn’t describe him as a young man. I just changed a very wet diaper and he appears to enjoy his pacifier quite a bit.”
With this Bobby quickly took the pacifier out of his mouth, but not before the new lady saw it.
"He came in wearing a Preschool No-Release Diaper, so I assume he tends to take the diaper off when he isn’t supposed to. He is wearing Picture Show Pants, so I assume he doesn’t tell when he needs to be changed. He has been acting more like the immature kids in our Transition classroom. He has cried since he got here and the only thing that could calm him down was the pacifier, yet he still hasn’t stopped crying completely. He hasn’t yet said one complete sentence; most things have been in one or two word expressions. So Marie, I do not think we have a young man here. A Preschooler or possibly even a Toddler, but definitely not a Young Man. "
“Really, that isn’t the picture of a 12 year old young man his mom described over the Vid,” Marie said looking straight at Bobby. “She indicated he was an average 12 year old who faced a malfunctioning ROOM unit this morning. She wanted us to put him in something that would allow him to use the potty.”
“I wouldn’t suggest that Marie. The changing table detected a naughty little boy who has been holding in his poopy, it saw a little boy in diapers, so it used diaper protocol for constipation.”
Marie looked at Bobby, “I am sorry Bobby, but you will now have to wear a DIAPER for at least the next 24 hours. The medication put into your intestines is only designed for kids in diapers, because you will now have no control over your poopy till at least this time tomorrow.”
“No Bobby. Training pants can’t do the job once you have had this medication. Sorry Bobby, you will need to wear diapers all day today and probably all day tomorrow. Now I need you to take this like a big boy.”
– Mood Hormone Rating: Dropping fast, corrective action needed –
A teddy bear suddenly materialized in Bobby’s arms. He hugs it tight.
“Carly, his mom said she would be here as soon as she got his younger sister off to school. Till she gets here, take Bobby to the Transition Room to join the other little ones for Breakfast. Make sure he gets a level 5 Preschooler Breakfast - it will help with the medication he was given.”
R.O.O.M. - Part 4 - Transition Room
The Transition Room was full of kids who looked like they were 4 and 5 years old. They were all still in diapers, but all kids at that age are still in diapers. Some of the kids were eating and others were playing. About half of the kids eating were in highchairs and all of them were wearing bibs. One had a baby bottle, most had sippy cups, and a few had regular cups. All had rimmed plates with divided sections.
“So these are the oldest kids in this school?”
“No, Bobby. We have Kindergarteners and 1st Graders too. We teach kids who are in diapers or still need help with the potty. Since almost all kids get out of daytime diapers in Kindergarten or 1st Grade, we teach kids through 1st grade.”
“Then why am I with these little babies.”
“You are not with the babies Bobby! If you keep up that attitude we will put you in with the babies so they can teach you how to behave appropriately.”
“But I AM 12 years old. I should be with the oldest kids.”
“I am sorry Bobby, but you would not fit in with the 1st graders. All of them are out of diapers and most of them are already out of training pants. Yes the Kindergarteners are almost all still in diapers since we do not start toilet training lessons till after Winter Break, but they don’t need pacifiers during diaper changes; they know when they have gone pee-pee or poopy in their diapers and tell an adult, so they don’t have to wear Picture Show Pants. . .”
“I can tell you when I go pee-pee and poopy. I don’t need these little kid Picture Show Pants.”
“Well your Mommy sent you to school today wearing Picture Show Pants, so you need to show us you don’t need them before we will take you out of them.”
“My Mommy didn’t dress me like this. It was ROOM. It was broken and made a mistake.”
“Bobby,” Carly said giving him a sideways look. “Big boys do not go Pee-Pee in their Diapers. . .”
“I didn’t . . . Well I did but it was just an accident . . . I couldn’t get the diaper off to use the Potty - I mean bathroom. . . I . . .”
“Bobby,” Carly interrupted. “Big boys use words to communicate when they have a problem, they don’t cry to a point that they can’t tell grown-ups what is wrong.”
“But . . .”
“Bobby, big boys go Poopy either in their diapers or in the potty when they have to go.”
“I didn’t poop my diaper!”
Carly smiled at him calling it his diaper. Even if he didn’t usually wear diapers during the day, he obviously has experience with regularly wearing diapers, possibly he still wears them at night. “No Bobby, you didn’t poop in your diaper, but you haven’t done it in the potty either. Big boys go to the potty when they have to go poopy, they do not hold it in.”
“But . . .”
“Bobby, big boys don’t need No-Release Preschool Diapers only Preschoolers do.”
“That was ROOM’s fault . . .”
“Bobby, big boys do not usually go around the school hugging their Teddy Bears, only little kids do that. So, like I said, you would not fit in with the big kids. You will fit in much better with the Little Kids.”
Bobby looked down to the Teddy Bear in his arms. Although his brain told him to drop the bear, he didn’t want to and just hugged it tighter.
“If you have too much trouble fitting in with these kids Bobby, we can try you out with kids even younger. Now follow the rules of the classroom and do what the teachers say. Your Mommy will probably be here around the time you are done with Breakfast.”
They walked straight up to one of the teachers. “Hello Carly. Who do we have here?”
“This is Bobby. I am not sure how long he will be with you today, but at least for breakfast. I will warn you that he was just given some Constipation Medication for kids in Diapers. Marie and I thought he would fit well with the other kids in this room. Marie also said he is to have a level 5 Preschooler Breakfast due to the meds.”
“Well hi there Bobby. My name is Teacher Rosie. You will like it in this class. Now let’s start you off with some breakfast and then at circle time I will introduce you to everyone. What would you like for breakfast, Pancakes or Waffles?”
– New Student Classroom Registration: Bobby Malik – 12 year old boy – School Identified Bladder and Bowel control issues – wears Preschool No-Release Diaper, with No-Control Youth level protection – Constipation relief medicine for Diaper wearers detected in system – Level 5 Preschool Diet recommended – wears No-Release Sneakers and Picture Show Pants – Teddy Bear and Pacifier are effective soothers – Current Cognitive/Academic level unknown – Current Adaptive Skill level unknown – Current motor skill level unknown – Recommendation: Link-Up or Admission Scan needed to fill in missing information – Until more is known, Recommend Toddler level instruction and expectations –
“Classroom,” Carly stated. “No highchairs or baby bottles unless skills show a need. Treat as high leveled student unless skills show otherwise. Do not Link-Up or perform an Admission Scan unless authorized.”
“Classroom, yes on level 5 Preschooler Breakfast, and Bobby here has said he would like pancakes.”
– Hi Bobby, welcome to Teacher Rosie’s classroom. We have special Blueberry Pancakes today. Let me get your bib on and then you can dig in –
Bobby was scanned and then a bib appeared on him.
“I am a big boy, I don’t need a bib.” He said as he quickly tried to take it off.
– Sorry Bobby, but No-Release Diaper, No-Release Sneakers mean you also get No-Release Bib –
“Bobby,” Teacher Rosie said. “All the students in this class wear bibs for meals, now be a big boy and go eat with the other kids.”
Bobby was definitely hungry and saw his options as very limited. He remembered a time in Elementary School when he tried to leave the classroom when the teacher didn’t want him to, and the classroom just transported him into his desk and put on a No-Release seatbelt. So, Bobby decided here he better just do as he was told for the moment, till his mom got here. His little sister Janie usually left for school right after he usually did, so his mom should be here shortly. He slowly headed over to an empty chair at the table. It was a typical preschool chair with a foot rest. As he got close, it dematerialized and another chair materialized that did not have the foot rest. Bobby smiled. He knew the chair was small enough for him to sit in without the footrest, his feet would definitely be able to lay flat on the ground. He was also glad that he didn’t have to sit in a highchair.
“Thanks Carly,” Teacher Rosie said smiling. “I am sure Bobby will do great in here. We have never had a kid as old as him in here, but I will manage. He isn’t much bigger than the 6 year olds in here. He looks like he is only a little bit bigger than the 1st graders, but I assume Marie had her reasons for putting him in here, the two of you are great at placing kids. I don’t often get kids in Preschool No-Release Diapers in this class, but since we use the changer for all diaper changes, I guess it really doesn’t matter. But a big kid like him in No-Release Preschool Diapers and No-Release shoes, is there something you should tell me?”
“He transported in dressed like that, including the Picture Show pants. Supposable it was a malfunctioning ROOM unit, which although rare I guess is conceivably possible, although I have never heard of one. Evidence and the report from the Mom are currently conflicting. The little boy who transported in did not present himself as a 12 year old boy who had been misdressed. He wet his pants as soon as he got here this morning and presented himself like some of your immature kids. I don’t have much more except, he did calm down with a pacifier and the teddy bear. His mom should be here soon. As soon as we know something, I will let you know. He may only be here through Breakfast, we do not know yet.”
As Carly left the room she saw Bobby drinking Cranberry Juice from a regular cup and digging into his Blueberry pancakes and sausage links. He still had his Teddy Bear in his other hand. Part of her felt sorry for the 12 year old boy stuck in a Preschool Classroom, but her instinct told her he would fit perfectly in this room.
R.O.O.M. - Part 5 - Holo-Student Link-Up
Teacher Rosie came over to Bobby and knelt down next to him. “Now Bobby. You are the oldest and biggest kid in the room, you need to be careful around the little ones.”
Bobby looked at her and thought about how she was not exaggerating. He looked around and saw some really little kids. Some of them were not much smaller than he was, but he was definitely the biggest kid in the room. He could probably stand behind the next smallest kid and rest his chin on their head, but here he was in diapers just like they were. If he understood things correctly, he would have no control over his poopies just like the rest of the kids in the room.
“You are here for now, so I want you to enjoy your time here. Let’s start by getting your Teddy Bear a seat of his own so you don’t get syrup on him like you have on your bib.”
“What?” Bobby looked down at the bib he was wearing and it did have a couple of drips of syrup on it. He always had trouble eating messy food without making a mess, but that is why they call it messy food isn’t it.
“CLASSROOM: Give Teddy here a chair of his own.”
– Breakfast for two –
Teddy was dematerialized and rematerialized into a bear sized highchair that appeared next to Bobby. He now had a bib with a picture of a Zero-G race car on it just like Bobby’s, and on the tray of the highchair was a small plate with plastic pancakes and sausages. They were not all cut up like Bobby’s, but it was cute and made Bobby smile.
“Good. Keep eating and don’t forget to drink all of your juice.”
Bobby kept eating and even asked for seconds when he finished the first pancake. When he was almost done with breakfast he heard a familiar beep.
– Holo-Student Link-Up Wilkes Junior High School –
Bobby’s heart started racing a mile a minute and was petrified by what was about to happen. He didn’t even notice the Red Light engulfing him with medical stats being holographicly displayed above him, signifying to the teachers that the CLASSROOM had detected something seriously wrong with this particular student.
– Holo-Student seeks absent child – Transporter and building records indicate Bobby Malik is in this room – Checking Room Records – Bobby prepare for Holo-Student Integration –
Two of the three teachers in the room, upon seeing the red light engulfing Bobby immediately rushed over to him. He was non-responsive to anything they were saying and didn’t even appear to notice their presence.
“CLASSROOM: get Marie” Teacher Rosie said. In the hunt for what had put Bobby in this state, she started listening to the same thing Bobby was.
– Bobby Malik’s presense has been confirmed – Class starts in five minutes – Holo-Student Link-Up will initiate in four minutes – Hover Holo Student is now at Bobby’s desk in his Chemestry Classroom at Wilkes junior High School – Standing By –
“Bobby? . . . Bobby? . . . Bobby?” Teacher Kelsey tried to get his attention while also keeping close eye on the medical stats displayed above him. It was obvious he was in shock. She also noticed that the wheels on the Picture Show Bib were loosing their color. She suspected this was due to the shock, not the cause.
Bobby couldn’t believe what was about to happen. Here he was dressed like a Preschooler, in a Preschool Classroom and he was about to be Holo-displayed straight into his Junior High Chemestry Class. What was he going to do, ask the teacher to leave the class so he could get his diaper changed? Apologize to the student sitting next to him when one of the preschools threw something and the holo-emitters decided it was him throwing something at another kid in his chemistry class? How was he going to explain the syrup stained bib, correct that, how was he going to explain the bib, period?
“Tea . . . Tea,” Bobby tried to say. “Tea . . . Tea-cher hel . . . hel . . . help me.”
Teacher Rosie was wildly trying to figure out how to prevent a Holo-Student Link-Up. Just as Marie walked into the room, Teacher Rosie ordered, “CLASSROOM: stop Holo-Student Link-Up.”
– Sorry Teacher Rosie, this is outside my capabilities. Student attendance law states children not of legal age must attend all instructional lessons of level 1 or 2 priority, with priority levels of each particular lesson set by the teacher. Bobby must attend his registered classes unless he has a doctor release. –
Teacher Rosie looked at Marie with a very pleading expression.
Marie looked at Bobby who was still engulfed in a red glow. She examined the Medical Stats above him and noticed the wheels on his Picture Show Bib had lost their color and the rest of the Zero-G Race Car was currently losing its color. She was working hard to quickly size up the situation to determine appropriate actions. It was very obvious that Bobby was in no condition to be Holo-emitted into his regular classroom.
“CLASSROOM,” Marie stated. “Did you register Bobby as a student in Mrs. Rosie Freemor’s classroom?”
– Affirmative, Robert Frances Malik age 12 is a registered student in Mrs. Roselleta Freemor’s classroom as of 8:17 this morning, November 3, 2572. –
“CLASSROOM: Use active SCHOOL-to-SCHOOL Link-Up to relay Bobby’s Temporary change of school registration - Authorization Professor Marie Jenkins, Lead Administrator Gleeful Times Nursery School. CLASSROOM, set highest priority, time is of the essence here.”
– Understood Professor Jenkins, Priority One, SCHOOL-to-SCHOOL Link-Up –
“Kelsey, help Marcus with the other students. Start Circle Time and get them focused on something other than this situation. Rosie and I will handle Bobby.”
“CLASSROOM: Special Location, end of meal student clean-up and removal of Bobby’s Bib.”
As the CLASSROOM removed Bobby’s bib and did cleansing actions to get the syrup off his face and hands, Teacher Rosie took the Teddy Bear out of the highchair and handed it to Bobby. He grabbed it tight and started to vaguely start to gain awareness to his surroundings.
“Marie, what do we do if that doesn’t work?” Teacher Rosie asked.
“Wait a minute, I forgot something. CLASSROOM: let Bobby’s other school know parental confirmation and length of temporary placement will be sent within the next hour.”
– Affirmative Professor Jenkins, relaying information over SCHOOL-to-SCHOOL Link-Up –
– Chemestry Class starts in three minutes – Holo-Student Link-Up will initiate in two minutes –
“CLASSROOM: Urgent Request: Access SCHOOL DRESSER - Special Location: put a plain colored T-Shirt on Bobby over his other clothes.” Marie said at lightning speed.
Bobby looked at Marie. Teacher Rosie and Marie exchanged glances and then looked down at Bobby.
“If at all possible it would be best if he is not seen in his Chemestry class wearing Picture Show Overalls, especially ones that indicate that his diapers are wet and messy.” Marie explained to Rosie.
“Thank You,” Bobby feebly uttered.
– SCHOOL Dresser Accessed – Student unknown, unable to do Special Location without more information – Urgent Medical Situation, overriding Link-Up block – Link-Up with student DRESSER initiated – Link-Up achieved – Necessary Student Information has been obtained – Special Location dressing requests initiated –
As they all looked down at Bobby’s chest, they saw a Onsie appear with Picture Show airplanes all over the garment, with a pacifier attached to the shoulder with a clip in the shape of an airplane.
“Now that is interesting,” Teacher Rosie commented while holding back a slight giggle. “I think we just made things worse instead of better.”
Marie and Teacher Rosie quickly went about removing the Pacifier and Onsie.
– Chemestry Class starts in two minutes – Holo-Student Link-Up will initiate in one minute –
“What do we do now?” Teacher Rosie said as she looked at Bobby’s face which was on the verge of tears as it reappeared as the Onsie came off over his head.
“Well . . .” Marie again looked down at Bobby. “Bobby, listen carefully. You must be a big boy and show no fear. It is very important that you do not cry. The Hover Holo-Student is already situated at your desk and you are sitting down at the moment so it will project you sitting at your desk. Do not stand up, hopefully the other students will be to involved with the lesson to see what you are wearing. Do you understand?”
Bobby shook his head
– Chemestry Class starts in one minute thirty seconds – Holo-Student Link-Up will initiate in thirty seconds –
“No, Please No” Bobby pleaded on the verge of tears. “I can’t go to class like this. Please.”
