Parents were non existent on any given day ut for aan ankle and foot in a doorway in a distant room. But they knew what we were up to.

Tehere were older siblings, and they were sanctioned if we did something to embarass the family.

And we were not allowed to be in the house during the day. We had to brave a lot for that.

Once, someone fixed the lock on our front door so we could lock it. I was in my twenties.

The teacher was NEVER wrong. But she was a good person, out for my welfare.

Mean, though.

People dressed appropriately. I still do, and I get treated well for it. Dressing well is easy and way underrated.
