Hehe, something quite impossible in Holland :)) (I mean the "shut up"
part :)) ).

I actually never went through a stage that I had to read loudly. In fact, I
knew how to read years before I learnt to write (and I learnt to write at 6).

Well, according to my Mum, I learnt to read on bottles of orange juice :)) . Or
at least I was able to read them already when I was 4 :)) . I still remember
distinctively reading (silently) a text about clowns in kindergarten (I was 5
or so). It seems we got reading lessons pretty soon in my town :)) (and even
then I was faster, at least according to my parents :)) ).

Like on Kinder Surprise IIRC :)) .
Take your life as a movie: do not let anybody else play the leading role.
