SoCS Saturday 20.03.2021: Calligraphy

When I was a kid, maybe 10 years old, there was a trend for calligraphy. There were sets that you could buy with fancy pens and little guide books that were supposed to teach you how to do it.

I bought my little set, £4.99 in Woolworths – a fortune as far as I was concerned but actually a steal, I think it was on sale – and brought it home. I sat at the desk and “learnt calligraphy” for ages, maybe 20 minutes. I still couldn’t do it.

Handwriting was never my strength. I used to have to rewrite everything in the middle years of primary school. My teacher was obsessed with the issue. Once she made me rewrite the same thing twice. I don’t think my writing was that bad. I think I just finished too quickly for her tastes.

I don’t know why I thought I could do calligraphy. Maybe I could have, if I had some other personality. I think that is when I learned I was a flake.

This was my post for Stream of Consciousness Saturday. The prompt was:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “starts with cal.” Use a word starting with the letters “cal” as your prompt word. Have fun!
