We were on the second floor, and at the beginning of the lesson PDCP let us into the room while he waited in the corridor. When we had all sat down, he put his head round the door, looked all round the room, then ran across the room and jumped through the window. He landed with the window-sill across his waist, then kicked his feet and went another six inches out of the window. He then dropped back into the room, said, "You thought I'd gone then," and started the lesson.
