    I dreaded the first day of school "let's get to know each other!" games. I don't care what your hometown or favorite movie is—what I want to know is if you take good notes, and if you'll copy them for me when I'm too lazy to show up to this lecture next week.

    I once took a class called Perception & Cognition. On the final exam was the question: What is a superior olive? I had absolutely no idea, so I answered: "A superior olive in an olive in a martinit made with Tanqueray gin."

    I got no credit for that answer at all…

    In elementary school I always had mom buy folders that I thought the guy I had a crush on would like. That way he would comment on my folders, and we would have something to talk about. Really, not much different than modern dating!

    My favorite thing about going back to school was buying all my stationery and school supplies. I was a stationery/pen/binder obsessor from elementary school on, apparently! I loved getting my school supplies all organized and putting them in my backpack a week before school even started. My backpack would be propped up in the corner of the kitchen counting down the last few days of summer. And, every year, from that time on, there was the excitement of labeling all my folders with my teachers’ names, wondering who these unknown names were, and what their classes would be like. Then, after the initial sleepless night before the first day of school when I was so nervous that I couldn’t possibly close my eyes, the magic and fear would disappear because, well, there really was no mystery.. It was the same thing year after year! Although it’s been over ten years since I’ve left school, I still get a pang of regret when I begin to see all the back to school sales. I want a reason to buy all those 10 for a $1.00 folders and packages of highlighters!

    The back to school tip- when answering an essay question, throw in the phrase "and so on".

    Awesome book idea. You guys kill me. I'm sure I could dig up a few submissions from my childhood if I had the time to go through my mom's keepsake box in her basement!

    I remember one exam in college. The last question was: "Why?" Everyone scribbled their hearts out trying to answer the great, Why? I think the most points were given to the slacker who wrote, "Why Not?" A lesson for us all…. :)

    As a kid I always wanted to be in a seat at front of the class, where we sat on first day was where we sat all year. What most people didn't realise was that the teachers don't take lots of notice of the kids in front row, so me and my mate would read Garfield books in boring lessons!

    Is the author , Richard Benson , an American by birth ? Wondering if I may have had him as a teacher in the seventies… I can't find much of a bio….
