Globe Earth Map Of The World - Free photo on Pixabay

*Image of Globe Earth Map Of The World by Pixabay. The Geo-Whiz It is my second day in high school and I had signed up for Geography. Nearing the end, our teacher gave a simple pop quiz test ... guessing that she was gauging us. She said to get out our pens and paper and list down the alphabet's on the left side of our paper. She stands next to the classroom globe pointing at it and told us to write down any place on there that we may know about, except Hawaii, then write our answers to the corresponding alphabets on our list. I live out in the country, far from the village high school. We have no electricity but an AM transistor radio, basically, it's entertainment for the adults. Now, that left us kids to do whatnots. Mines was reading ... comics to encyclopedias. (The completed tests were turned in, graded, and returned.) Marked in red, she gave me 99% and an A. The lunch bell rang and I went to her desk and said that she made an error and that she had crossed out my 'O' and replaced it with an 'I'. I told her, "I did not write about a country but about a city in Algeria that is larger than Honolulu." After showing her that place on the globe, she changed my grade to 100% and an A+. In regards to that correction, just add 'ran' to those alphabets to know what had occurred. 2021 July 02
