The worst thing I ever did,until I started
'getting arrested' for 'standing in the face
of the beast', unappologetically, happened
when I was in the 6th grade.

I'd gotten a new fountain pen, and was
teasing the Girl who sat behind me by
shaking the pen at her - and the pen
leaked.

I've felt-bad about it ever since, because
her Mom never got the ink out, and she
had to wear the blouse I'd ruined until
she grew out of it :-[

My Teachers weren't 'afraid' of me be-
cause I was 'bad'. They 'moved away
from' me 'because' I, well, offered 'sug-
gestions' - 'impertinently'.

We were supposed to be there to Learn,
after all.

I was born, raised, educated, in, and
Served in, the U. S. Military.

My Dad would've 'skinned-me-alive'
if any Teacher ever gave a bad report
of my behavior.

I just had my own ideas about what
is important to Learn.

So, I Learned to Teach myself,
in the back of the class.

Folks put all sorts of fancy-twists on
it, but 'fear' is 'moving away from'.

So my Teachers [not all of them] were
'afraid' of 'me'.

Same as 'you' folks :-]

"We'd better starve him out!"

It won't work :-]
