True Happening. I once had a student who almost always had a
mid-morning slump. You could almost set your clock by him.
Discussing this with my doctor he told me about his father-in-law who
spent 35 years teaching and who always had a large mason jar on his
desk marked, “BRAIN PILLS.” It was there to motivate students,
and to enable the teacher to dispense at his discretion, M&Ms to
students who did something really great, or just needed a bit of a
lift. He suggested I try the same for my student. Oh, my! It
worked like MAGIC. A bit of sugar raised the alertness and the
protein in the nuts kept it there! CAUTION! Don’t try if you are allergic to peanuts or other nuts. Also, limit to five candies. Otherwise, ENJOY!
