One thing I haven’t ever really gotten used to is the boys changing in and out of their uniforms from their gym clothes in the classroom. God help you if you walk in two minutes before the bell after PE class. I forgot myself this afternoon and got an eyeful of 팬티. Now, as to why they feel the need to be climbing all over the damn desks (and each other) in their underwear….

Waiting outside. “Can I come in yet?”


“Well why are you over here talking to me then? Stop fooling around and put your pants on!”


Yes, my little cherubs. I’m aware that there is a smell. I have a nose. And the scent of 40 teenage boys shaking out dirty sweaty gym clothes in one tiny classroom is not exactly subtle. But thank you for sharing with me. Yet again.

Of all the things that may be considered requisite for civilization, a locker room with showers may be high on the list.

A funny story, though. Kids are a hoot.

Seriously. I do not need to be seeing them in all their boxer brief glory. Not that they don't make a habit out of standing at the urinals with the bathroom door wide open, shouting, "HI TEACHER!" at me when I pass through the hall as they are in the process of relieving themselves or anything.

Boys are gross and shameless. Basically.

But, but, but, that's what the ladies love... Right?...

What, men who call their underwear "panty", men who smell, or men who talk to you while they're peeing?

I'm afraid that's three strikes and you're out, friend.

Hehehe, I love when guys here call their underwear panty. My ex used to ask me where his panty ended up all the time, no matter how often I corrected it. Hilarious

See, I'm not such a big fan of "panty". The word kind of freaks me out. My students will try to name their teams something or another panty, and I have to tell them they have to choose something else, because I can't make myself actually say the "p" word. It's one of those words I just really can't stand.
