For the most part, I loved school--from kindergarten right on up through the moment I walked across the stage to receive my master's degree. But in high school, there was one class I dreaded, one class I hated so much that I hoped for snow days and prayed for fire drills to put me out of my misery: gym.
The only class I truly despised in high school was gym. I hated everything about it, from having to change into shorts and get all sweaty in the middle of the day to being forced to do sit-ups on the hard gym floor. The only part of gym class that I could mildly tolerate (but still despised) was gymnastics. All I had to do then was practice handstands and forward rolls, and no one was throwing balls at my head or yelling at me to run faster or measuring me as I stood shivering on cold locker-room tile.
So tell me: Is there a class you wish you'd never been required to take?
