…We had to do some mathematical investigations.
We did one called Frogs, but it’s difficult to explain what we did, so I’ll just say that
it was pretty hard.
But that was better than PE in the gym, which is always boring and
a waste of time…
Yes, that’s right: I preferred doing something difficult to something boring. But understand that the difficult thing involved sitting down in a dignified and quiet fashion behind a desk, while the boring thing involved running about making a fool of myself.
Which would you have chosen?
