Might As Well Teach Them Calligraphy Too, While You’re At It

When you’re a kid, you think that the entire world is one crisp line of rich, sweet-smelling cursive. You look forward to learning cursive.  You talk about it with your friends. You think you’re going to be granted entry to some secret society of people who can communicate in code.

Well, it isn’t that special.  No one actually ever uses it.  The only time I do is when I’m signing something.  And even that isn’t really cursive.  It’s more like a half-assed scribble that vaguely resembles my name written in cursive.  A cursive capital Q look like the number 2?  Come on, inventor of cursive.  That’s a bit of a stretch.

We shouldn’t waste valuable third-grade class time on cursive.  Just learn to sign your name, eat some applesauce, write “BOOBIES” on your calculator, and call it a day.
