My TaTa’s are smarter than a lot of people I know. They’ve really gotten a well-rounded education and for that I am grateful. For this week’s Spin Cycle, I am going to share a story about The Twins and their higher education.
Back in college, I never really enjoyed my classes until I got into my major. There was this one class, Networking, that I absolutely loved. I would get there early to find a seat in the front and actually pay attention and ask questions. Who does that? One of the things that I enjoyed about the class was the professor’s willingness to teach. It seemed like he was singling me out of that entire room full of students and I enjoyed having someone pay such special interest in my education.
One day toward the end of the semester, I rushed into class and dropped my overloaded backpack in a heap by my desk. It was summer in Florida and I was hot and sweaty from running from the parking garage to get to class on time. As I slumped into my desk, I noticed something. I hoisted my boobs onto the table like they were a fancy purse I was carrying as an accessory. My girls are on the large size and are not the most pleasant companions to carry around all day. Apparently, I had gotten into the habit of using the classroom desk as a means of giving my back a break for a short while.
I was mortified at the thought of someone seeing me do this. Was this an unconscious habit that I did all of the time? Was this an unfortunate one time thing? I soon got my answer. The professor started his lecture and walked over to my side of the room. He perched himself directly in front of my desk and gave me a little smile as he went over the day’s materials. I quickly deduced that I had been providing him with the motivation he needed all semester and in turn, he was motivating me to learn. I guess it was a win/win. I did get an A in the class but to this day, I still believe I earned it. These bitches are smokin’.
*Please note that I received an A due to my hard work and diligence, not because I showed the teacher my boobs. I might have done that in a few of my other classes if I had thought it would work. Also, I am not really under the impression that my boobs are “smokin”, but they weren’t half bad in my college days before children.
