All this talk about nudity prompts me to relate one of my early beginning
teacher experiences with high school boys. Right away you know this is going
to be good. Right? There was this dirt road that lead away from the edge of
our property toward the airport nearby. Some distance down this road was a
great spot to draw the great ourdoors. The dirt road sort of skimmed the
periphery of a dump. Now dumps can provide great things for the art room but I
had already screened this one. Not well enough apparently. As I neared our
destination, I noticed that I seemed to be missing almost all of my boys. When
I asked where they were the girls giggled and said that they had stopped at
the dump. I pictured rat bites, etc. So, off I go to round up my little
darlings. As I neared the dump I noticed that they were all clustered around
one particular large box. I was standing right among them before they even
noticed me. You see someone had thrown away a really large collection of old
Playboys! I tried my best to make sure that they were all put back in the box,
but those darn Playboys kept showing up in my room right up to the end of the
year. Fortunately my principal was a really great guy with a tremendous sense
of humor. Cause he was standing there when I discovered one of them. Actually
he had already heard about Ms. Butler's (my name then) art room Playboys! Now,
I think National Geographic fails to compare!!!
