A Man Who Has Nothing In Particular To Recommend Him Discusses All Sorts of Subjects at Random as Though He Knew Everything

Little Known Fact: When I Was Little I Went To Private School

I have flat feet, and my father was a banker. I went to school every day carrying my books in a briefcase like this one, after my father had worn it out, and wearing wing-tip shoes, because a cobbler could put wedges in the heels.

I have never again been as cool as I was when I was ten years old.

  1. Ah yes…. I had this case. It took a licking and kept on ticking for over ten years of hard slamming daily use. Then…. well…. sorry to say (Nope, NOT sorry to say) I completely lost track of it.

    When I was little, I loved it when our class got to go on field trips. Besides getting out of school, going where people were actually making stuff was always red-letter. I learned so much more watching assembly lines than I ever did sitting in assembly.
    Sometimes we even got free samples.

    As far as I know, you don't give out free stuff, but the yucks are priceless.
