Back to school

Every Tuesday my mum picks my niece up from school. So today with nothing to do I thought I'd tag along. It's really wierd going back to a primary school after so many years (at least 12), everything is so small. The chairs are small, the tables are small, the students are small... These things weren't that small when I went to school were they?

What really shocked me was how low the drinking taps were to the ground. I was thirsty so while waiting for the bell I decided to take a drink from one of these oh so low taps. So there I was stooping over the tap when I depressed the lever, only to get squirted in the face with a jet of cold water. I'd forgotten how tempremental these taps are. Whether they are tempremental through through student or divine tamperings I don't know. After the bell rang I noticed a couple of kids come and take a drink and none of the used the middle tap (the one I used). It's almost as if they have a sixth "tap" sense. Wierd...
