“You haven’t let me down, Will. You’ve let yourself down,” so said many a teacher to me as I ambled in, shirt untucked in a vain and failed attempt to appear nonchalant, cocky. But enough of my schooldays, the issue is you – for you have let both me and you down. An enticing opportunity to demonstrate your limerick skills, not to mention the chance to win a couple of books – apparently these are not enough to tempt the demanding Corridor reader. So come on – spend five minutes and produce your best. Your teacher would be disappointed in you.
After all, you wouldnâ€™t want to let yourself down, would you? (didnâ€™t you hate how teachers always ramped up the guilt factor?)
