Confession Time

When I was in second grade, in Ms. Coleman's class, I used to think she gave to many worksheets for us to do. So I would tear off the last page, and when she asked me why it was missing, I would say it was never there and whoever stapled it must have missed that page. I did this like once a week, and she never questioned me about it. Mind you, after second grade, I never cheated, even in high school and junior high when everybody copied work. But I was a second grade rebel.

What's your elementary school confession?

Etcetera.

This is fun!

I can remember that my parents expected PERFECTION out of me, even in 2nd grade. So when we would get our graded papers I would take all the B's out and anything worse and throw them in the garbage so all they would see were the A's. That plan failed after the 1st 6 weeks when I brought a B home in Math and all they ever saw was A's.....

The teacher took a book away from me EVERY SINGLE DAY. I'd get bored in class, see, and bring out a book to read. Apparently I wasn't very good at concealing them, because I was inevitably busted. I'd get it back at the end of the day and finish the book on the bus ride home. Oddly, that was the extent of my punishment.

Not that this is a revelation to my family, but I doubt I'd ever told you this story.

I stole a toy tractor from Temple Baptist Church pre-school.

My first grade teacher painted her nails with clear nail polish. I didn't know anything about clear nail polish when I was that little, but I would see how shiny her nails were when she passed out pages. So, to make my nails shinny I would lick my thumb nail (btw, it only stays for about 20 seconds). I thought I was way cool.

In 1st grade we had a little play area in the corner of the room and one of the "games" was a tub of uncooked rice and measuring cups to learn about volume. I remember getting so hungry in the mornings that I would eat the dried rice. Really disgusting now that I look back on it.

I also took one of Myste's barbie dolls to show and tell and bit the nose off. I told her I didn't know who had done it. I have since confessed :)

In the 6th grade, I used charge my classmates money by writing peoples' lines for them, and forging their parents' names on their signed papers. I had a couple of regular customers.

Like rachel, I used to read in class. I regularly had a book under the table during most lessons. Unlike rachel, I didn't get caught.

Now I wonder two things: Did the teachers know and were just glad I was quietly reading? And how much more would I have learnt if I'd had the patience to listen to what the teacher said instead of reading escapist fiction?

I shall never know.
