10-year old Diego Martinez, felt like most of you did this past week! - He did not want to go back to school after the Christmas break. Instead of coming up with the usual excuses of headache or tummy ache, he decided to do something more creative..................he glued himself to the frame of his bed.

When his mother came to wake him up for school, she found him watching television, his hand firmly glued to the bed!. She spent two hours trying to free his hand, with water, oil and even nail polish remover. However, nothing worked and the poor mum had to call emergency services. The paramedics were finally able to free his hand.

Just In case you think this was a great idea to avoid school - think again - After all this, Diego still had to go to school that very same day!
