my dignity is at an all time low

Getting dressed this morning, I stabbed myself on the safety pin that had previously held my skirt more tightly closed. I don't actually need it right now, it seems.

Then, in class, I ran back upstairs to get my pen box, came back down, went back to teaching, and glanced down, realised I was standing in front of my class with my vest top half way down one boob. I had a bra on -  a black lacy one - but still. Fourteen people, four of them new students who had only just met me, one of them an 18 year old kid from Saudi Arabia... and me and my boob. Nobody told me! I could have taught the whole class that way!

I was struck by the awful thought that my boob may be the first one he's ever seen. Poor child. I couldn't look at him, but I did peep over between my fingers to see him grinning from ear to ear, and he didn't faint or stone me or anything, so I can only assume he's here to sow his oats and his religious sensibilities are taking a back seat.


I'm still waiting for the third thing to befall me.

Oh, you probably made that student's year! So- may have been an embarrassing thing for you but it was a gift for him!
