3) Asking very silly questions during oral exams. Then laughing hysterically at inappropriate moments.
that was very funny. you obviously did a public service here Tab...this kind of an ambience in a classroom during an oral exam and this kind of explosion - laughing - must have created a completely stress free environment. Way to go.
were you sent to stand outside in the hallway facing the wall? i bet the teacher felt like shooting you. i did that for a while in French class (but not during an oral exam) until the teacher threatened to fail me
- and i was great in French.then i created the best map of France and she loved me - as she was from France. suddenly i could do no wrong. it didn't take much.
we called her "mumbles" because she spoke from behind her teeth - -well with her teeth closed. i don't know how she did it.
and so i settled down.
and became a conformist. some of my happier moments were in french class. go figure.

“One of the pitfalls of childhood is that one doesn't have to understand something to feel it. By the time the mind is able to comprehend what has happened, the wounds of the heart are already too deep.”
“But in good time you'll see that sometimes what matters isn't what one gives but what one gives up.”
A room without books ..is like a body without a soul.”
“I couldn't help thinking that if I, by pure chance, had found a whole universe in a single unknown book, buried in that endless necropolis, tens of thousands more would remain unexplored, forgotten forever. I felt myself surrounded by millions of abandoned pages, by worlds and souls without an owner sinking in an ocean of darkness, while the world that throbbed outside the library seemed to be losing its memory, day after day, unknowingly, feeling all the wiser the more it forgot.”
