Memoirs of a Hayseed Physicist by Peter Martel

Part 10:
In The Beginning:
Another incident of my early school days occurred in ninth grade. At that time the number of boys in class had dropped. I was cajoled into playing the part of a tired husband coming home from work in “domestic science”. There were some twenty girls in this class and, at that time, the important thing in a girl’s life was to prepare for the happy day when the would wed. So, for twenty times in succession I would open the door and one of those dears would invite me in with a peck on the cheek. (A peck was all the nuns allowed). She was supposed to ask if my day had gone well and then engage me in small talk.
