Meryl Davis: I remember the smells of my first day of school very vividly. I went to preschool at my family's church. When I go back, even now, I am reminded of that first day of school. If my nose and memory serve me correctly, it was a combination of old wood and graham crackers -- a very comforting combination, if I do say so myself.
Charlie White: I rode the bus for the first time on my first day of school. So, at the end of the day when I was riding the bus back home, I was so tired from the full day of school that I fell asleep at the back of the bus and didn't wake up until the bus had pulled into the school bus parking lot for the night; it was a horrible experience.
