BACK IN MY DAY

If you speak to my mother she will tell you stories of back in the day when I started school and hated going to school and use to escape. The grade 1 teacher had a stick called Johnny walker.. a red and purple stick.. now that i think about it.. do you think she was sipping the real johnny walker in the principals office.. (he was her husband) my mother tells that story the best.. she will always end it like this..what’s amazing is that now she married into a family of school teachers and a principal.

Back in my day the teachers use to spank us now a days the students are spanking the teachers. EISH!!!!
