Miss Kelley's capital C
on the fifth-grade blackboard
simultaneously suggested
the outline of a human ear,
the curvature of an elephant's trunk,
the mirror-image of a question-mark.

Miss Kelley's talents in calligraphy strike as very poor, if not unusual? lol The way you describe the rendering of that C makes me think no wonder it had a lasting impression! Enjoyed the reminiscence, it's the kind of details I'd definitely have taken notice of too. I found this fun, so I'm leaving with a smile on my face - merci.
