I was looking through my primary-school books yesterday, and in a grade one notebook, I noticed my hand-writing, and story-telling ability, advancing throughout the year. Most of my musings were about playing games, or going to the Ekka, or my dad. But there was one page I came across that wasn’t about any of these things– and frankly, frightened me a little.
That’s right: “During the holidays I saw the car accident and I Liked it.”
I don’t know what’s more disturbing, though: that I wrote the sentence (and drew a corresponding picture of it), or that my teacher went over the page, and the only thing she could find wrong with it was that I used a capital “L” for “liked” (as seen in the red correctional pen).
