People: Room 5

Room 5 was the room you were taken to when you were in big trouble. Your heart would stop when you heard, “Have you got a minute?” and it would plummet when “Room 5?” followed. It got to the point where it became a verb, as in, “I got Room Fived today.” And that’s why it’s here, because Room 5 is as big a character as any in this ridiculous story.
