2. Doing a peer group exercise where we rach had to finish the sentence: 'I wish I had......'. We were all being quite trivial and jovial till one quiet boy who had immigrated from Vietnam said, 'I wish I had a mum and a dad who were still alive.' Noone knew his parents were dead. It put our trivialities into perspective.

Pedro- Sunrise in the ocean sounds good. Must be great to see that every day.

Kim- I think that is a fair indication of your level of becoming Australianised. "Going" is a very important step in the process.

Crazyjedidiah- Yeah.. I have some vivid memories of being picked on too. High school bullies are the worst.

Wendy- What do Americans do if the toilet isn't in the same room as the bath? Conundrum.

Deb- oh yeah, the romantic tradgedies. For me year 10 was the year.

Ruth- aww, that's cute! What was the musical? Pirates of Penzance?

Karen- I'm very much looking forward to reading the Narnia series to our kids. They had a big impact on my childhood as well.

One for a wish- Thanks for doing the quiz! Your memory reminds me of a strong memory I have, of all the tough boys on the back seat of the school bus smelling like oranges.

Al-I hope you have photos of you as the Tin Man.

Ruth said...

Ben- lol! It was a different G&S- HMS Pinafore. .... I like Pirates better though.
