In the early seventies I was teaching an advanced composition class...you
know how you get to teach a lot of things with a k-12 certificate? Anyway,
it was a huge group of college bound (sort of) seniors and most of them
would "smke their lunch" I had an
awful time staying with the curriculum and had a contact high half the time.
We were supposed to be reading Joyce Carol Oates "Upon The Sweeping Flood" I
knew those wasted rangers weren"t up to it, so one rainy day they filed in
and I decided to
read the story to them. I read it in my most theatrical style...the
students were mesmerised. The mostly male audience st spellbound as I read.
The bell rang and they filed out. I sat there and congratulated myself on a
fabulous "teaching" moment.
One of the few girls came back in the room and I thought she was moved by
the story. She said,"uh, YOur blouse is unbuttoned to your waist" remember
those slinky silky blouses? Of course I was wearing my nasty push em up and
salute bra...
I left an indelible impression on some of those impressionable little minds.
