Do you remember gym class?

When I was a teenager, I hated gym class. I thought it was boring, and I resented the smelly uniforms and numerous laps that we had to run. For me, it simply wasn't a pleasant experience. Today, I am working in a middle school where I get to see kids participating in gym class every day. Get to see you ask? Yes! Sometimes, the kids run around the entire school. Other day's, it's the cafeteria. They run while they listen to music, teen music. Our building is full of treadmills, and other exercise equipment. The gym teachers even play exercise videos for the students to follow. It's all state of the art. Gym class has come a long way.

When I was in high school it was a rule that all the girls had to s*wim n*ude in girls s*wimming class. For some reason the boys were NOT made to s*wim n*ude, my brothers said that they were not allowed to s*wim n*ude.

There were never any males in the pool area during our s*wim classes, of course.
