The theme Education this week at Sticky Fingers immediately made me smile.
I was a feisty teenager with bad hair and a matching attitude, don't be fooled by the glasses I was actually quite cool.
Tara and I have had a conversation a few months ago on Twitter about an incident I was involved in at school and she
I must have been about 11/12 and my friend and I were supposed to be doing homework in the local library. We weren't we were looking at medical books and massage books, cracking up at the nudie photos inside. Anyway reckoning ourselves as little business women we had money making brain wave.
Using the photocopier we made lots of copies of the pictures, women in towels being massaged, breast examinations, mothers breast feeding... really anything that involved a low level of nudity. We then cut them out and stapled them together into little books and sold them to the idiot boys in our year for 35p.
By break time we had made enough to buy ten Benson and Hedges and were laughing smuggly until we were yanked into the Deputy Heads office. We were immediately put on report for circulating pornographic material.
The Deputy Head did however say he hoped as we grew older we were able to focus our entrepreneurial skills better, and looking back I think he may have been stifling a smile.
