When my wife first saw this one, she immediately asked, “What did you do?” - assuming we had to write out the school rules because we had broken one of them. She might be right, but I don’t remember anything specific. As I’ve said before, I was generally quite a good boy and didn’t like getting into trouble. I think you can tell by the sheer number of books I filled that, age 8 at least, I was pretty keen on school, despite my occasional protest to the contrary. So I don’t think it was anything I did. At least not yet. But really? I think this is one of those times when Mr Geraghty said “Let’s talk about rules and regulations” and, as a whole class, we were asked to make suggestions about what the rules should be. Stuff we could all agree on. There’s no other way you’d end up with a rule like “Do not kick people under the table” or “Do not play about when you are supposed to be working.” Or hey - how about this? What if Mr Geraghty gave us each the task of writing out what we individually thought the rules should be. If so, that would mean these are the rules I thought we should live by. I don’t know if I’d have been able to do that without saying “Do not call yourself Joanne on a Thursday” or something similarly daft. But “Do not pinch somebody’s chair” has the ring of harsh experience about it. I can believe I’d agree with these rules. A confession. At this point in my Fairburn story, I am still a good boy. But that doesn’t last forever. Eventually I will do something spectacularly naughty, and everyone will know it was me. But that’s still nearly a year away. It’s not even covered by the rules written here. And when it happens, they will punish me right where it hurts.
