(Yo Ray!.. Sorry for um, ‘finding’ this paper… hanging in the staircase of your building.)



“Punishments”

So a while back someone gave me a blank book filled with graph paper. Seemed like some interesting paper to draw on. Hopefully it would get me over the “hang up” I have with that paper.. it is what my 4th grade teacher, Ms. Casey, made us use for our “Punishments”.

Do something wrong, and have to write your punishment.. on graph paper. One letter, per square… over and over…  until the page was done.

Mess up once?… Start over.

Hand cramping?.. Massage it for 30 seconds, then keep going.

Not learn the lesson?.. Do 5 sheets.

Still not learn?.. The whole class had to do em.

And after they were all done and got a quick check for accuracy?… Ripped in pieces and thrown away.

I  usually got good grades in elementary school, except for… conduct, effort and… penmanship.  So I OFTEN had this one…

This was another common one…

Decades later I realized that some of these punishments had really stuck. And not always in a good way. So maybe the same techniques could be used to “unpunish” myself or or for things that I would consider more positive uses.

Oh, and how can I forget? For next level shit we would have to write ONE WORD PER SQUARE…

“Sorry”

I spent a lot of time almost filling that book. But eventually decided to stop punishing myself…
