Blog Prompt – Today is National School Nurse Day.Â Do you remember your school nurse and do you have a story about her.
I had the same school nurse for years.Â Her name was Sally Burke and she was a really sweet lady.
The thing I remember the most is that in the 5th grade they had all the boys go to a room and watch a movie.Â Later all the girls stood in line outside of that room and when the boys came out, I remember the look of horror in their eyes and faces.Â I couldn’t imagine what in the world they had watched.
Then it was the girls turn and it was “THE” movie about sex education.Â I will never forget looking around at all the girls and how horrified we all were at what we were looking at.Â You have to remember this was the 1960’s and girls in the 5th grade didn’t know any of this stuff.
When the movie was over, Mrs. Burke asked if we had any questions.Â One girl asked her how the sperm got to the woman?Â (It didn’t explain that to us in the movie)Â You could’ve heard a pin drop.Â Mrs. Burke turned a nice shade a red and told us all we would find that out on our wedding night!
Well of course, none of us wanted to wait until then because that was years away.Â We were intreegued by the movie and wanted answers immediately.
So, we asked the boys.Â They knew and told us in living color.Â GROSS!!
Boys!!Â They all have cooties for sure and we knew they were lieing to us.Â And how did they know those answers anyway?
Well, as the years passed, we all figured out the boys weren’t lieing and they didn’t even have cooties.
