      Det kunne være en hæmsko, men det kunne også være en fordel. Min historielærer „LilleJensen“ og jeg kunne have lange diskussioner om aktuelle samfundsrelevante emner, mens resten af klassen tog sig en morfar – dengang hed det en lur – ligesom jeg var langt forud for de fleste andre, når det handlede om litteratur, både moderne og klassisk.
      It could be an obstacle, but it could also be an advantage. My history teacher, "LilleJensen" and I could have long discussions on topics relevant to society while the rest of my class took a nap – back then it was called a snooze – just as I was far ahead of most of the others with respect to literature, both modern and classical.
