Dayton, Ohio (1976)
I was doing financial paperwork the other day, and it reminded me how in the 2nd grade, I was taught to draw what was allegedly a "proper" number "2".
If she disliked your sentences, she would sing her opinion in this imperious, operatic voice:
Well, being the creative creature I am, I decided to write my number 2's with a "wavy swoosh" at the bottom.
She berated me for it in front of the class, and it went like this:
Teacher: "Is this how I told you to write your 2's?"
Teacher: "Then why didn't you write them the way I told you to?"
Me: "Because your way is [singing at the top of my lungs] "BBBBBOOOOOOORRRRRRIIIIIINNNNNNGGGG!"
I went to the Principal's office for that one, who couldn't stop laughing about it.
And today, I still write my number 2's with the swoosh.
