    When I was in about third grade, the lower elementary teachers got weird about how we used the fountain. At peak times, the first-grade teacher, who could have played any of MacBeth’s witches, would stand holding the lever of the drinking fountain growling: “Two swallows—only two swallows!” and allowing us very small swallows at that before she flicked the water off. They didn’t seem to notice we were going straight into the bathroom and drinking from the faucet because we were so thirsty.

    When I was young a trainee teacher tried, unsuccessfully, to teach us to wash our hands before going to the toilet to wee. Her logic was wee is sterile.

    How do you expect to master the pencil sharpener if you can’t even handle the water fountain?

    Back in the day, there was the lining up, filing down the hall, drinking neatly, and filing back. Or the quick quiet solo trip. Couldn’t ask to go too often. There was really a lot to it ;)

    Maybe Sally shouldn’t put her mouth on the spout of the drinking fountain.
