I’ll also afford you custard creams with Yorkshire TeaMy family emigrated to America in the mid sixties when I was thirteen.
My first day at my new school I noticed that kids could sit anywhere they chose.
There was an empty seat in front of a very large girl which I took.
Before the teacher had even started, this girl was sliding me and my chair closer and closer to my desk with her outstretched feet.
After putting up with this for a second time, I turned to give her a good hard, dirty look.
When I turned around to face the teacher, he was looking at me and pointed. You, the new English kid, I suppose that you must
know all about Custer?
I said no sir, only that I like it.
" what? what on earth are you talking about"?
Custard sir, I like it, my last school in England made a really good one and so does my mam.
I didn't quite comprehend his answer to me as the laughing from the students drowned him out.
Funnier than that tho was, after the lesson, some kids were backslapping me saying how brilliant I was and did
I come from the same place as the Beatles.
I made friends and people laugh without even trying.
It certainly wasn't the best way to start a new school as far as the teacher was concerned but like I said,I’ll also afford you custard creams with Yorkshire Tea
