Well, I'm not quite at this age, but sometimes it certainly feels like it...
The truth is, she's probably a visiting professor, and not a student ~ I experienced that last year in the Catholicism in America class.
And, I only have one more class to attend! The paper is due on the 7th. No, I haven't quite started it yet....you know, right? The looming deadline seems to bring out my creativity, although it does stress me out. Actually I took today off since my boss is on vacation and I plan to write my outline today.
But the post headline has to do with the age difference between myself and the rest of the students ~ which to be fair, there are a good number of students in their 30's ~ not all are 20 somethings. We were discussing the uniforms that were given the first women park rangers.
The point is, it was NOT pants.
So, being who I am, which means I sometimes say shit I wish I had not, I spoke up and said that during that time period (1945? 1950?) women wore dresses. And then I continued with "I hate to shock you, but when I was in elementary school, girls weren't allowed to wear pants, we had to wear dresses or skirts". There was a short shocked silence, and then one of the young women in the class leaned over and asked "weren't you cold?".
