I was a cheeky brat as a child,
I remember having an argument once with a teacher, whose comeback
was - well if you don't study harder what sort of job to you hope
to get? my reply was - well if the worst comes to the worst i
might end up teacher.
Another teacher caught me talking in class, when she asked who
I was talking to, i told her my imaginary friend, she then attempted
to take me on in a battle of wits - whats is your imaginary friends
name? Little Jimmy Sham, don't you think your a bit old to have
an imaginary friend? Litte Jimmy Sham says your never too old, etc.
Then there was the time I grabbed a role of magnesium ribbon in
a dish clothe and lit it - subtly or so i hoped, its amazing
how hard it is to disguise the fact you just set fire to a
roll of magnesium ribbon.
