How good are you at sitting up?

I think it’s one of the more difficult things humans do and to sit up and stay attentive is doubly difficult. How did we ever get through those years of schooling?

How did the teacher keep 30 of us sitting still all day?

Threats and brute domination.

Fear of embarrassment. Or you could say the threat of embarrassment.

Sitting up straight was my best subject.

Recess was my best subject, that and lunch.

I MAJORED in recess. With a minor in lunch.

I was a nerd. I was the one who took the names of people who talked.

I didn’t. I was sent home a lot.
