Stream of unconsciousness

After spending last evening with friends at a casino, I'm firmly convinced gambling is the great satan. Damn you, Blackjack. Damn you to hell!

The jagoff sitting next to me didn't make things any better. He was talking to someone behind him, non-chalantly taking blackjack after blackjack (which clearly should have been mine) and, when he didn't get a blackjack, making bad decisions which cost me money. Not to mention, he was carrying on a conversation behind him and delaying the game on almost every deal.

Not that I'm bitter.

Most know I love spicy food, so a stop at an Indian restaurant last night was a real treat for me. My buddy Gary and I had already hit a steakhouse, where I handily defeated a 16-ounce KC strip and baked sweet potato, but decided to meet up with friends at The India Palace anyway. I had a small plate of a chicken dish that peeled several layers of mucous membrane away from the inside of my piehole. My kind of eatin'!

I can only imagine what the demand must be for gastroenterologists in Calcutta.

Today is a lazy Sunday, it's finally raining in St. Louis after another dry spell that had everything turning a crispy brown. I'm sitting in front of the big screen with a cup of coffee and my laptop. It's a good day.

I'm watching a piece on Fox News about all of the teacher sex scandals have been uncovered in the past few years. They showed pictures of some of the teachers who've been involved, and all I could think of was, WHY NOT ME?

This woman had a sexual relationship with her 13-year-old student. First, let me say that any adult who has sex with a 13-year-old is completely perverted, but of all "horribly tragic" things that have happened in my life, why couldn't THIS be one of them?





Here's another totally smokin' teacher who had sex with one of her students. (she's the one on the right) Funny how things change... when I was in school it was fashionable to give your teacher an apple. Now, you give her a "baby's arm holding an apple."*

If a male teacher had sex with his female student, there would be a far louder public outcry, don't you agree?

The year I graduated one of the coaches married one of the graduates. They had been dating all year long an no one knew about it -well no one who counted. LOL The now school superintendant was once the high school principle. Before that he was the high school biology teacher. He taught his wife marrying her after she graduated. You don't hear much about the male teachers involved with female students but it does happen.

Raehan said...

Actually, I think it happens more often with male teachers and you just don't hear about it.

But that's just a guess. Just a gut feeling. I have no idea.

The Drivers Ed teacher in my school was sleeping with half the senior class. He finally got busted for sleeping with a 14 year old. He was a former wrestler and about five feet tall. Lfe is really strange...

Justice said...

What do these women see in these young boys? And yes, I agree with you. If it were a male teacher with a female student, the public outcry would be a lot louder.

In my 16 years of school I had ONE hot teacher. She got married 6 weeks into the school year just when I was thinking about making my move. I was 13. (And I had no idea what a "move" was.)

Teacher/student inappropriate relationships are more commonplace than you'd think they'd be. We had a guy get fired last year over one - and it wasn't his first. The guidance counselor at the high school I graduated from started life as a driver's ed teacher and knocked up his student wife-to-be (this was while my mom was a student at the same high school). It's wrong, but it happens. The teachers involved are predators, whether they are male or female. They are incapable of having appropriate relationships with people their own age, even if they have a marriage "cover". They can rationalize it by saying they "fell in love" all they want; it's still child abuse, even if the kid is 17 years and 11 months. I don't care how "mature" the child seems.

Sorry for the rant, but since this is what I do for a living these child sex offenders masquerading as educators get me enraged.

I agree with you Dave, where were these teachers when I was a student. I want to go back to school.

Lee Ann said...

Yes Dave, I agree. I just don't understand it. I don't think I ever heard of that kind of behavior when I was going to school. I don't think anyone ever "realistically" thought about their teachers that way. I remember the kids would think a teacher was good looking but that was it! It was taboo!

TequilaGirl said...

I really don't understand any of it. I can understand marrying someone older or younger when you are both adults, but these are children we are talking about. It is completely disgusting!

Tammy said...

I think she ought to be treated as a man would in the same situation. It's seriously just as twisted.

Molly no gamble.

Thank you.
