Dreaming about an unusual trip to the optometrist Quote Of The Day

Pen Licence

An email to 2GB and MTR’s C Team: Mark Levy, Chris Bowen and Trevor Long

Good evening gentlemen,

I do remember the pen licence quite vividly because I had to qualify for mine twice!

In year 3 my teacher insisted that we had to prove that we were capable of writing neatly in order to use a pen. My handwriting, whilst legible, was an incoherent combination of upper and lower case letters, so for example all of my As were in lower case, all of my Es, Qs and Rs, were in upper case. My teacher hated this, but eventually allowed me to use a pen when I started writing the occasional upper case A in the correct spot.

In year 4, my teacher refused to let anyone write in pencil because it was too faint for him to read.

Then in year 5 I had my year 3 teacher again, and she made everyone re-qualify for their pen licence.

Mind you, she was a tad odd. According to her, Sorbolene Cream solved virtually every problem known to man, and muting your television while recording with your VCR would prevent the recording from having any sound…and she kept reminding us of it.

Enjoy your evening. I hope to hear y’all again soon!

Regards,
Samuel Gordon-Stewart
