Three things I remember when I was in Grade 1—
- To enter Grade 1, my teacher asked me to touch my left ear with my right hand, making sure my right arm was passing above my head. If I can do it, I'm allowed to enter. If not, I was supposed to go back to Kindergarten.
- My best friend in Grade 1 and I formed a business partnership. We sold candies for 5 cents each. We sold everything within the hour and declared ourselves successful. The candies cost us 25 cents each.
- In Grade 1, I proposed marriage to a classmate. She turned me down.
How about you? What could you remember?
