1. Can you imagine being OCD and having to take a standardized test? Imagine having to bubble in all of your answers on a scantron. Torture, I'm sure!
2. Pretzels are the WORST snack to give out during the TAKS test. First, the eat them like a squirrel. I had no idea it takes so long to eat one pretzel! There are many ways to prolong it:
- Bite off each curve individually. Then eat the remaining branches one at a time.
- Lick all of the salt off of them and then proceed to the technique above.
- Bite each pretzel into a letter. Examples: A, B, C, D, J, K, M, R, S, V, W,Y Also, they can be bitten into a teardrop.
- Eat all the way around the outside of the pretzel (like a layer) and then go the other way to finish it off.
- See how many nibbles it takes to finish one. Whoever takes the most wins.
All are disgusting and delay the inevitable. My personal opinion - pretzels should be banned from the testing environment. Why not, everything else is!?
