So it's been brought to my attention that I forgot the crazy shenangigans that went down in school today. My bad, here it is:
Belgian's talk about sex. They talk about all of the reproductive organs, and birth, and all of that shit that we American's stick our heads beneath the ground for. And I am not ashamed in saying that I behaved like an American today.
Our teacher was passing out the papers that will be our guide through this...course..and I was just so happy and optimistic and apparently missed the part where they said we were studying this, and I saw the paper, said "Hey what's...OH MY GOD CLITORIS!" And it all went downhill from there.
I freaked. I laughed. I said inappropriate things. In short, I acted like a teenage American who was confronted with something she considered awkward.
Where others would have been ashamed of their lack of maturity on such a subject, I am not. You know why? Because this was my first real culture shock. Four and a half months in, and I hit my first cultural barrier! And I think that that is a damned good streak.
I make no promises as to whether or not I'll behave better in the class in the future...We'll see on Thursday. :|
