I don't recall being forced to read it even once (someone else probably got my turn).
I WAS forced to read a different thread but I believe it was a test (I think I failed).
On second thought... I may have read the 50% off now that I look at the thread. I recall seeing the brightly colored little bird trying to hide on the dull brown branch stub (sort of the story of my life).
The story of my life, always in the "Different" group.
We were poor when I was young (not my fault), so was the school district apparently as there was no kindergarten. I started out in First grade, walked to school (and yes, there was a hill between home and school).
How much for the little bird???
Sorry... I got carried away, didn't mean to hijack the thread.
