"Get out your pencils and paper...."

Those dire words meant only one thing:    A POP QUIZ WAS ABOUT TO HAPPEN!

I'm sitting in my office....which my wife calls "the basement"...dressed all the world like Hugh Hefner or Donald Trump...and I just noticed that I accidentally put on one black slipper and one brown one.

I didn't do it on purpose, but it reminds me of a man I read about who regularly wore one brown shoe and one black one....on purpose.

It was to remind himself of his boyhood poverty.

I'm thinking of carrying  a piece of white chalk in my remind me of the 12 years I spent under the constant threat of "pop quiz torture."

You never knew when one would pop out at you at the least expected moment and seriously affect your final grade …..and conceivably your future life!

Better yet, instead, I think I'll carry around a bottle of Arpege remind me of.....

Never mind.
