From the Headmaster
When was the last time you had a stone in your shoe? It does not exactly hurt, but makes it impossible to enjoy a stroll. Rage, in private, can have a cleansing effect; but irritation gnaws and nags. I still remember a good friend (still thus), at his desk behind me, sniffing through our A-level History paper. Some are irritated by the wrong type of Christmas card; others by music or expressions or words or eating styles. And then there are people: some television personalities have a reputation for being irritating. I cannot stand people clicking their knuckles. I have written before that coughing without covering one’s mouth should be illegal – at the moment, of course, it is also dangerous and unethical.
