The best part was the beginning where the pages were first separated. The color was purple, the paper flimsy, and sometimes the small letters would be blotchy. The page could have been a test, or a math problem, or connect the dots which revealed an image. Sitting in rows of small wooden desks, we could not resist the odor, and would hold the page to our face to smell the smell more directly. It was oddly intoxicating and quick to fade.
