It was a long time ago, but I still remember the multiple choice question I got wrong on one elementary school test, and the thought of it still bothers me.
The test was asking (for what reason, I can’t remember, or, more likely, never knew) the best way to dry off after going swimming. There were two obviously bogus choices, then the one I was going to choose dry off with a towel and then another: Let the sun dry you.
Hmmm: Let the sun dry you? I thought. Why not? It’s easier, feels nice, and is more basic. (I don’t think we used the word natural back then.) OK, I’ll pick that.
