This is a question School Days

"The best years of our lives," somebody lied. Tell us the funniest thing that ever happened at school.

Half of Stephen Fry's right buttock's post reminded me.
Not really funny but I've been sat here for days trying to remember a little nugget of silliness that happened during my school days. (I'm old so I've been having trouble reminicing that far back).

What I do remember however, with a lot of uneasiness is the School medical. I must have been at Junior school, so any age between 6 and 10, (maybe more towards the age of 10). I have this awful image of standing in some classroom or office and being stark bollock naked infront of a doctor and either a female nurse/ teacher. I remember being told to strip down and getting to my knickers and vest and thinking that was it but then being told to take those off also. I don't even remember being examined, just looked at. I remember having a strong feeling of thinking this was very strange as well as wanting the ground to swallow me up. Now as I said, I am old so this happened in the early 70's and it was less stringent about kid's rights then.

Any other oldies out there who had to get nekkid for the school medical or was I just too damn attractive a kid not to ogle?

I'm beginning to think I dreamt the whole thing up.

I imagine it was fine as long as they didn't take any photos... or introduced a goat into the room...

No, it happened to me too...

I later found out that it wasn't even a medical...they were all just unsure as to what sex I was, and they had a sweepstake going...

All these years later, the results are still inconclusive :(

'Cough please'
I never did understand that one.

I blocked out getting circumcised
...for about 20 years.

Way into adulthood I began to have tiny recollections of being about 5, I think it might have been done at school (seeing that typed out, I'd say unlikely) and an Indian doctor with cold hands.

Could this possibly be true? Might it have been done at that age?

I'm not a Hebrew so the 'definitely doing it at birth' thing doesn't necessarily apply.

I had the chop (trim) at age 2 for medical reasons, apparently.

a few years back some bright spark in education decided that all children at nursery school should spend at least one lesson a week in the water area, which is usually a sort of shallow Roman bath filled with funnels and tubes and other water-related toys.

This means that nursery teachers have to help change the little tykes into and out of their swimming gear once a week. It never occurred to me until recently that the ulterior motive was so that the teachers would regularly see all the children clean and naked and be able to spot the telltale bruising of domestic violence.

Not funny, but pretty clever, I thought.
