And in language class…

I clumsily try to explain that the sentence doesn’t look like it’s in the passive voice to me, that I can’t even figure out how to make I fell out of the tree passive without adding other layers of meaning to it.

My teacher tells me that the sentence is passive.

“Why?” I ask. “How do you know?”

“You have to feel it,” she tells me, “Inside your heart.”
