My First Day of School in 1940

From a 3-minute writing prompt:


My sister was the one who introduced me to my first day of school. I loved it. During that day Miss Irene passed out pictures of a circle and instructed us to start in the center of the circle and gradually color it in. I chose a red crayon and did exactly as she instructed. Most of my classmates made straight up and down 6 year old scribbles. Mine was the one filled in with increasingly large circles without going outside the lines.

I have spent a lifetime learning to occasionally color outside the lines.
