Today however, in an attempt to create some reasonable semblance of order here, I started cleaning out drawers and came across a couple of funny things. The first was a document featuring the following picture:
“This year I have changed. By getting smarter. I started off the year in grade 2 and in January I was prmoted in grade 2 to grade 3. I grue taller too. I was only up to my mothers mouth and now I am up to her nose. I grue to be with god too. I learned to go to church every Sunday and Be happy when ever I went. I have grone a lot sins the beginning of the year. I grue a lot. – Jenny Selk”
The second thing worth mentioning was this drawing:
I’m sure the connection seemed logical at the time.
The last thing I organized was an envelope full of my old report cards. Most illuminating are the ones from junior kindergarten. In December of 1984, my teacher wrote “Jenny appears to prefer isolated play to group interaction. She is a very sensitive little girl who is still learning to accept constructive criticism in a positive manner.” At the end of the year, in 1985, she wrote, “Jenny continues to demand constant recognition for all which she does. She may be an extremely cheerful little girl, however her moods alter quickly.”
Nothing ever changes here. It’s official.
I’m off to the grav rard to get me some carrots. M-m-m.
