ABC's (my favourite)

When I went to school teachers weren’t as nice as they are nowadays. If you were naughty or got the answer wrong, they’d throw bits of chalk at you. Now when I was little I had trouble learning my ABC’s. I’d stand up and go A, B, C, D, E, F, G and get stuck at H. After days of this happening, the teacher said to the class

“Tomorrow morning, Miss Baitman will stand up and say all of her ABC’s. If she doesn’t, she’ll get the cane.”

I went home and told my dad what the teacher had said. He stayed up with me the whole night practicing. And in the morning, I stood in front of the class and said

“Z, Y, X, W, V, U, T, S, R, Q, P, O, M, N, L, K, J, H, I, G, F, E, D, C, B, A”

He was so surprised that all he said was

“Thank you, Miss Baitman, you can sit down.”

dec80 Happy NEW Year..... Fresh Start!!!

What a lovely story.

Thanks for sharing this as it brought back some memories for me. My uncle taught my brother and I to say our alphabet backwards when we were younger. My Brother is still perfect at it but I always get stuck at K,J.

I would also like to write down my gandmothers stories. I always think it’s important to treasure the memories they have so that they can never get lost. I brought my grandmother a book which is designed for her to answer questions about her past then hand back to me as a gift. However she’s yet to fill it in. :>)
