Just a young whipper snapper. I'll be 38 in October. ;)

I carefully reminded Lisa this morning (it's her birthday) that she is, for the next four weeks, the same age as me!

More than me. I only understood the second line from the end. :lol:

(11 + ?)


You're probably too young to remember the 11+ Pooh (I missed it by a year). But in the good old days of British education kids took an exam at 11 that decided whether they went to grammar school or comprehensive school.

It was always considered that the grammar school education was better and it was quite a burden on kids to perform well. :)

I took the 11+ and officially failed it, only for the school inspectors to investigate the exam markings (I won't post on here why they did), and discover that the headmaster had been taking bribes and giving pass marks to pupils who had failed, and just to keep the exam pass percentages in keeping with what was expected, he would mark as 'fail' pupils that had actually passed.
Accordingly, both my sister and myself were marked down!

I still haven't forgiven him for affecting our lives, to the degree that he did.
Going to my school was an education in itself. Which is not to be confused with actually getting an education (Schultz)

I never cease to be amazed at the depths people go to, and how it hurts others. :cry: I am sorry to hear that Batty.
