The Case of the Varsity Football Player and the Frog

When I was in high school, there was this guy in my history class that was one of the varsity football players. His name was Julian and he was enormously big and husky. Julian's desk was on the next isle right next to mine. He kind of liked me and was always talking to me and trying to get my attention. I was not interested in him in any way, aside from just being friends.

Julian would always show off in front of the class and me by giving other guys a tough look; something like the "eye of the tiger." He'd strut about the classroom, like a peacock while flexing his muscles and showing off his powerfully body.

One day, in my Biology class, we had to dissect a frog. I remember cutting the legs off and peeling the skin off. I was totally engrossed in the legs because they look exactly like a human's legs. The legs were perfect, with the thighs flawlessly muscular, as well as the calves. I became so enthralled in finding how much the frog's legs looked like a humans, that I put one of the little legs in a piece of tissue paper and put it in my purse. When the bell rang, I headed for History class.

When I got there, I sat down in my desk, opened up my purse and took out the tissue that contained the frog leg. Excitedly, I turned to Julian and gave him the leg, which was on top of the tissue paper. When he took it from my hands, I was just about to tell him that it was a frog leg and to see how much it looked like a severed miniature human leg. I never got a chance to finish my WHOLE sentence because when he opened it up, his eyes bugged out, and asked me what it was. I told him it was a frog leg. He let out a most horrible shrill, he gasped, pushed his desk to the ground as he tried to get up and run, then he fainted!

My teacher asked me alarmed, what I had done to him. I told him all I had done was to give him my frog leg to see.

I was immediately sent to the principal’s office where I was severely punished for a whole month.

Julian the muscular he-man tough guy turned out to be an overly cooked wet noodle!

Fitting quote for this entry:
The bigger they are,
the harder they fall!

Wonder what would have happened if you gave him a human leg and said "Look how much like a frog leg it is."

He probably would of fallen to "Pieces" and died, and
I would of been charged for "Man-Slaughter," OMG!

what a great recollection to have grooved into one's memory. a lesson of life not sought but taught so effectively; what's on the outside rarely represents what within. i suppose the more common way of phrasing it is that one can't tell a book by its cover.
i wonder, often, what image, perception and stereotype glimmers off my skin which holds within treasures unique, just to me. i'll have to think about that. shalom.

I'm glad you enjoyed my little memory of a certain day in my life which I'll never forget.

You hit it right on the nail, "can't tell a book by its cover."
Brings David and Goliath to mind, who'd of thought a big powerful giant would fall, head first, by David and a little pebble!

that is a hilarious story! however...i think a week suspension is a bit harsh! i wonder how much time out of school he would have gotten if HE did it to you. :D

Possibly a pat on the back, and I,
suspended for a week for disrupting
the class and making such a mess
of the classroom!

I hate tough guys :)
May. 21st, 2004 01:21 pm (UTC)
I had no idea he'd react the way he did!

Poor guy, I'm sure he's chosen to obliterate
the memory of that event, to this day.

HEY AL!!! How you doin'?

That was too funny..... ~chuckles~

I went the other route in school and started a "food fight" type event with frog parts.

But then I was the odd child... did not get expelled or even suspended though. Was a private school and my parents gave alot in the way of funding, and business to the school.

I never did frogs
We had fetal pigs. We all stole the snouts and placed them in a despised English teachers desk all over. Never got caught which was beautiful.

Re: I never did frogs
That should be a lesson to all teachers, to be nice
to their students, OR else, pay the consequences.
Glad you all didn't get caught!

That is too funny!

Re: the Varsity Football Player and the Sexy Frog Leg
I've often wondered what ever happened to
my little frog leg. I had planned to take
it home, pickle it and keep it forever.

I suspect my little new found treasure
never stood a chance when Julian dropped
dead cold to the ground... *sniffles*

Nice! Hey, got a question for you...what's your opinion of UTEP? Good school? They're offering an online MFA program.
Jan. 10th, 2007 01:04 am (UTC)
Although I've never gone to UTEP, I do have friends that do, and they say it is a very good school. A couple of them graduated and went to medical school in San Antonio and are now doctors.

El Paso's most prominent men and women graduated from UTEP.

=o) he must of been kind of like me :o)lol
Jan. 10th, 2007 01:05 am (UTC)
He was no way like you! He was a pussy willow creep!

"My teacher asked me alarmed, what I had done to him. I told him all I had done was to give him my frog leg to see."

Well now you know what showing your legs can do to a guy even if that was only your frog leg hehehe...
love you sweetie
Smooch! =o)

Punished for what, exactly?
Jan. 10th, 2007 01:09 am (UTC)
For taking the frog leg without permission, and for causing the big lug bodily harm, because he hurt himself when he fainted, and for duress!!

I was stuck, after school, for a month in Study Hall!

You evil, evil woman! lol Seriously, I am kind of like that guy. No, no strutting around like a peacock. But the sight of blood, especially my own, makes me weak in the knees. I have passed out giving blood before.
Jan. 11th, 2007 03:33 am (UTC)
I haven't been an evil woman for quite sometime now. Not to worry, I'll soon get the hang of it again! :o)

I think most men react the same way as you when it comes to blood. Goes to show, us women are tougher than you guys when it comes to that! heh heh
