Here’s a page from one of the notebooks I was using in my first year of college. The thing is, I wasn’t taking German at the time. My best recollection (helped a bit by this notebook) says I had enrolled in Old Testament, Philosophy, Linguistics, and French.
As usual, I remember very little.
Mom and I were in England; we were going to see the Queen open parliament. First we were watching her go by, in the street; we were at the front of the crowd. Her vehicle (a bus) stopped; the crowd surge forward, the doors opened for a moment, then closed; on me! I was for a moment trapped; I looked up and the Queen was standing before me. Then the doors opened, and out I went.
