I remember my first day at school with one key thing: a giant letter "A". Many of them.
In my first class the teacher wrote the letter A on the blackboard and asked my classmates to write it 10 times on the first line of our notepads. I duly did.
Only later did I learn that "the first line" was meant to mean the space between Line 1 and Line 2, not the giant margin above Line 1. This miscommunication produced probably the biggest letters "A" I've ever written in a notepad.
Boy, wasn't it fun to start my education with giant "A"s!
