Gym Class

Linzy and I had dinner with Fred, Robin, Brenden and Allison tonight and at one point we were discussing the activities we did back in junior high gym classes. Back when, apparently, safety wasn't quite as much of a concern.

For example:

  • Running the mile outside in the teacher's parking lot in the winter in Duluth
  • Archery - Hormonal Teenagers with projectile weapons? Clearly a good plan
  • Unsupervised Gymnastics - Brenden tried a flip dismount from the rings and landed on his head
  • Javelin - See archery - I actually watched a kid got hit in the foot with a javelin

I liked archery when I was in school, but even then it seemed amazing that no one got shot.
