I received this email a while ago with a great memory suggestion:

“I don’t know if you’ve use this memory before but it was a lesson I am currently teaching my son about loose gear. The memory that comes to mind, that I shared with him this morning, was the swat box. I remember once in grade 12 a classmate had a sweater appear in the swat box, for which you got swats. When he came back and sat down we managed to secretly sneak the sweater back through the crowd; back to the front of the room and back into the box. I know his name was called a second time because that was the reddest I had ever seen his face. I don’t know if he was swatted the second time but it certainly was an enjoyable memory.”
