Does this site have a dunce corner? A few days ago, her highness Heidita said I lived in the dunce corner and she even included this lovely image here.
I do not think Heidita has sent me to the dunce corner yet
It used to bother me when I first came here that I was sent there and felt stupid that I had made a silly mistake but after a while I began to gain a better perspective and remembered that we all make mistakes in life and we don't fail because we make mistakes but only fail if we fail to learn from them
So we can choose to either see making mistakes and visiting the dunce corner as a kind of life-long pennance lol or we can see making mistakes as jumping across stepping stones that can propel as forward to the next stage of learning
I know which I would rather choose lol and most people would agree that it's not rocket science!
I find the dunce corner a great place to go to escape the stress and busyness of life. whenever I feel like getting away from it all, I simply come to the forum and make a mistake or two so that Heidi will send me away.
Thankfully, she has sent me away more than once. I have needed the rest and relaxation!!!
Dear Gangster ish , I am a permanent resident of the dunce corner , I was sent
there so many times I have applied for a permanent residency permit.
This I hope will give me " landlord rights " enabling me to charge a small fee
for temporary tenancy . You will be welcome , bring your own blankets and nibbles.
It's part of a long-running joke that arose out of a (more serious) discussion about disciplining school children (past/present here/there). Somebody (possibly it was Hedita) was unfamiliar with the expression "dunce cap" and that led to the posting of several pictures (which some thought very funny).
En la foto, solo es mi hermana. En mi familia, somos nato con tales gorras.
She's just joking. When we make silly mistakes she sends us to the dunce corner.
You're not there permanently....just 10 minutes or so!
Just a thought, have you spoken to her about it? Emailed, Private messaged, etc.? I am sure it was all in fun.
She sends those pics out at times. SOmetimes hard to know how to take it but I think it is a joke
I think this might be us just now. We will have to start sharing dunce caps if we keep this up.....hehe.
You are in very good company! I can't wait till my turn comes (soon, I'm sure, because if it wasn't for Qfreed, I'd already be on the waiting list for permanent residency).
I could be wrong but I believe she was saying "qfreed" lived in the dunce corner. Check the post, she was refering to a quote.
If there is one, I know I'd belong there. I took Spanish for 4 years in school and I still have a terrible grasp of the language.
Wow ... that dunce is really, really cute. Does she need any private tutoring?
Don't worry it happens to all of us. I got sent to the dunce corner for the first time yesterday :( And, I deserved it. I made a silly English error while my Spanish was perfect :O
