100-Word Challenge for Grown-Ups (100WCGU) Week #46

I’ve decided I can begin to add some challenges back into my posts.  This is a favorite, as I am a judge for a kids’ 100WC.  From Julie, the creator of 100WCs:

Very straight forward prompt this week:

… in the dark recess of my mind ..

As usual you have 100 words to add to these 7 making 107 altogether. Make sure you keep the prompt as it is, please put a link back to here so that others can read all the posts and make sure it would be suitable for a PG certificate.

Physical Education was a drag.  I didn’t like the uniforms,

We wore uniforms for P.E.
Just like these.

changing in front of those skinny cheerleaders, taking group showers (Heaven forfend!)  All of that made Meta-Phys. Ed. bad. Worse were the classes themselves; running, playing kickball or softball or field hockey.  All good ways to get hurt, especially if you were as gaumy as I was.

But hidden in the dark recess of my mind was a completely different schedule for Phys. Ed.  I’d begin with stretching, while talking about its value;  reiki would come next.  I would offer belly dancing, which is great for the abdomen. And the advanced girls would learn the basics of acupuncture.

  1. Phys. Ed. sucked, so did the uniforms, so did the coach/teacher. We should have learned good body mechanics and proactive physical/occupational therapy with some human anatomy so we could learn how to protect ourselves and prevent injuries as we aged. I skipped Phys. Ed. and hung out with the stoners, behind the IA shop, smoking pot. Good for me!

    • I never had the guts to skip a class — I didn’t want my parents to have to go to jail for murder. So I went along with every damned thing we had to do — AAAARRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGHHHHHHH! I wish I knew you then — a perfect role model for getting out of being perfect!

  2. Why couldn’t PE have been like that when I was at school? Would have much preferred it to freezing on a hockey field, unable to even see the ball without my glasses on.

    • I’m glad someone thinks it would have been worthwhile — I hated it with a passion so deep that sometimes, I’d pretend to be sick, to miss taking a certain test or performance demonstration. Of course, now I’m a big fat slob! 😎
