That Mysterious “S” Thing We Used to Draw
I can remember learning how to draw that quite vividly. I sometimes wondered if it was even supposed to be an S because of the way it looks like it loops around back as if it had a third dimension.

When I was in about third or fourth grade, this was a fad in our school. I don’t think we thought of it as an S, just a cool design. We did a unit on ancient Egypt and had to design a sarcophagus, and we all drew that thing on it. Some of us would add extra lines to elongate it, which makes it look like a chain or a braid
