Did You Ever Skip a Grade?


On Fridays, I post a series of unrelated questions meant to spark conversation in the comments. Answer one, answer all, respond to someone else’s reply, whatever you want.

1. Did you or your child ever skip a grade? Get held back? What impact did that have on you? Would you do it again?

2. What’s the longest relationship you’ve had with a pet? Someone I worked with claimed her cat Bozo lived to be 23, but she was guessing that he was “about 10? when she rescued him.

3. What’s a store or restaurant currently only in your area that you think should be a nationwide chain?

4. With Borders closing stores, a lot of people might need good bookstore suggestions. What’s your favorite independent bookseller?

Have a great weekend!
