Stavning var inte min morfars starkaste sida. Därav den välanvända ordlistan som låg instucken under skrivmaskinen. Han gick bara i skola i sex år och började jobba heltid som glassförsäljare när han var tretton. Jag har gått i skola i femton år nu och jag känner mig inte det minsta färdigutbildad.

Spelling wasn't my grandfather's strong suit. Hence the well used dictionary that was tucked underneath the typewriter. He only went to school for six years and started working full time as an ice cream salesman when he was thirteen. I have gone to school for fifteen years now and I don't feel at all ready to start working.
