As a very active seven year old, most of my time and energy was devoted to making life miserable for my second grade teacher. My classmates found my antics to be extremely amusing, while Miss Donahue prayed for a measles outbreak so that I would be absent.
In spite of it all, I liked her. She was a first year teacher, no more than 22 years old, and attracted my emerging yet primitive libido. I loved showing off for her!
