Grandma hated school. She went back in the days when being left-handed was a criminal offence. Faced with the choice between being punched frequently in the back, or struggling to hold a pen in her right-hand, she opted for the latter. From then on she concentrated so hard on forming letters with her non-dominant hand, that learning anything was beyond her reach. Knowledge and understanding were for others. She was stupid and lazy – her teachers told her so. But she had her moment of triumph on the day she was the only child in the class who could correctly spell Wednesday.
