當時我們幾個同學就在考試 的時候坐在教室最後一排, 一起把試卷吃掉了。我那個 學校是當地最好的中學,學 校方面就覺得你們浪費自己 的時間是很愚蠢的,而且十 六七歲也算大人了,有能力 獨立思考,所以也沒有對我 們怎麼樣。 During exams, we sat in the back of the classroom and ate the examination papers. I think it was breakfast for me that day. I went to the best high school in the city, so our behaviour was considered foolish and wasting our time. We were about sixteen years old, emancipated with critical thinking, so they did not bother to do anything to us.
