Owned By A 10 Year Old


Category : Lifestyle, Personal

Mom is a teacher. I am a teacher too. When mom is busy, I take her place and cover for an hour or two. Only problem is I teach 17 yrs old and up, mom is teaching 7-11. So I took her place today for an hour, stood with the kiddies. They were supposed to write a composition.

While I was walking among the desks, to see how kiddies are doing, I was correcting some of them, telling them to replace certain words, or making them aware of their misspells etc. In the first bench on the left… a little young lady, dressed in pink jeans and a pink t-shirt with blue-ish flowers. Hmmm… Ok… Let me see what she’s all about I say to meself. I get closer and look over her shoulder. Maaan, her notebook was a mess! With scratches and a lot of ink and… just imagine a war going on in there! She was writing three words, she was changing her mind, hewing the hell out of that notebook.

What’s your name? I ask

Eveline. she answers and scribbles another freakin’ word.

Eveline, you’re supposed to write in a more pleasant manner. This is your classroom notebook, you must have a neat writing. 

Yes, I know.

Well, in this case, try it. You’re scribbling a lot. Don’t you have a proof reader? Proof read your mistake, don’t scribble it.

I am not allowed to use a proof reader.

Who’s not allowing you?

My daddy says that people who use proof readers are stupid.

At that very moment, an entire classroom of professional proof reader users and a previous one (me!!!)  remained mute, the kiddies looking at me, perplexed, and I, looking at them, stopping myself from bursting into this hideous laughter! Shit… I so restrained myself from strangling lil’ Eveline, who just scribbled another one in the meantime, when I realized she had no fault. Her daddy just confused things or took them to an extreme. It’s true that kids must not be taught to OVERUSE proofreaders, but it’s definitely not an option to let your kid have a notebook full of ink poopies and slaughtered words, aye, DADDY?

I love my girlfriend’s Skins! And I’m not referring at her skin – I love that MORE – but at her jogging and fitness apparel. She runs beside me and, while I end up soaking wet after 5 miles, she’s clean and fresh. I had to know what her secret was: antiperspirant, a special body lotion, what waaaaaaaaas it?

It’s my new SKINS SHE, she answered. I’m defying genetics apparently. Defying genetics? Hmmmm… So, inquisitive as I am, I had to see it for myself. How can she defy perspiration? I tried EVERYTHING! I mean it! Until I decided to run bare chested, at least I won’t see my damn t-shirt all wet! Just my shorts… pfff! And I found two prints that matched my requiery:

Don’t play the cards you’ve been dealt.
Wear Skins™ She. The unique gradient compression enhances
muscle oxygenation, increasing power, stamina and speed.
It also helps eliminate lactic acid and prevent fluid retention,
so you can bring even the most rebellious body into line.
Enjoy giving fate the finger.

I think they’re very well done and they convey in a good way the meaning of the entire SKINS concept. And I absolutely love the Enjoy giving fate the finger they have on their official website! The print version is a little milder, haha!

Anyway, while I am  enjoying myself these women kicking the hell out of previous versions of themselves, I have to say the prints remind me of the Adidas Olympics ones.
