We Like Kindergarten, Eloise Wilkin, 1965- Show & Tell, originally uploaded by try-whistling-this.
When I was a kid, I had an uneasy relationship with Show and Tell. I felt a bit pressured to perform, to be interesting, to have something to Show on a set day of the week. It wasn’t optional, and I railed against things that were enforced. Why not show when I had something I felt was worth the airspace? But school is school, and I had trouble with a lot of it. Once I became as a little chronologically older but not necessarily more grown up, my attitude changed a little. I enjoy Show and Tell now, in the form of sharing blog memes. I can opt in and out. I don’t have to share if I don’t want. No one is going to come down hard and give me detention. It’s a nice way of sharing. It’s a good way to get to know new people. It’s a novel and educational slice of people’s lives that they don’t usually share on their craftblogs. It’s always interesting to see what people choose to share when given a particular prompt. It’s probably fuel for psychological analysis.
How did YOU feel about show and tell? How do you feel about my dire assertion that
your answers are a look into your psyche? I don’t mean to put you off. Join in the new Show and Tell meme for Sundays, at Craft Blog.
I’m starting off well, having missed Sunday. I never post things on the right days, anyway. Might as well start how I mean to continue.
