The coordinator said that she had heard about my interactive style of teaching and thought that I would be perfect for this unit. Not quite sure what she meant by that! In any case, it sure will be an interesting semester!
I decided to share my big news with my family- husband (H), 16 yr old son (B1), 14 year old son (B2) and slightly younger step son (B3) over dinner tonight. Little did I know that the conversation would end like this...
Me: So... I've been invited to teach a special elective unit at the Uni. It's on Sex and Intimacy in Cinema.
B1: Sounds like a fancy shmancy term for PORN
Me: Where do you learn these things?
H: Ha ha ha, 'porn', that's a good one!
*high 5s B1 and they laugh their stupid 'we are the masters of the universe' laugh*
B1: So Mum will you have teach them about the clitoris?
B2: What's a clitoris?
B3: Yeah what's a clitoris? We saw it on Southpark. It's a big huge pink thing that looks like a hat.
Me: It's not huge OK. Where do you learn these things? Who's letting you watch Southpark?
H: ha ha ha, Southpark, yeah that was funny.
B2: Yeah and it has magical powers or something. What is it Dad?
Me: Don't ask him, he doesn't know.
H: *shoots me a look and suddenly gets all serious*
Well boys... when you have sex...
B3: Ewww gross. I'm getting out of here
B1: Man, our family put the 'DIS' in disfunctional
Me: No son. Our family put the 'FUNK' in disfunctional
So much for my big news!
