When I was in one of the very early grades, my teacher was telling the class a story I had never heard before: the tortoise and the hare.

I was rather confused by the moment where the hare decided that he was going to lie down and take a nap. Why would you take a nap in the middle of a race? That's just not appropriate.

So I was trying to figure out why, and it occurred to me that maybe - since my teacher was Mexican - this was happening in Mexico, and the hare had stopped to take a nap because it was time for siesta. Meanwhile, the tortoise had kept going because it was NOT Mexican, so it did not know what siesta was. But I wanted to be sure, so I raised my hand, and asked "was the hare Mexican?"

The teacher thought I meant "Mexicans are lazy," so she got mad and sent me to the principal's office.

So then I had TWO things I didn't understand.

When me and a gf were holding hands on the way home from a field trip. Everyone was staring and I just remember being embarrassed as hell.

A lot of these are really funny.

In 6th grade I wore a pink Playboy belt my mom picked out for me at a thriftshop ( she didn't know what Playboy was and neither did I at the time) and I wore it to school around April since Easter was coming up. I showed it to my classmates because I thought the bunnies were cute. Then these two girls gasped and told me that that bunny represents naked ladies. All of my classmates laughed at me. I was super embarrassed and turned it inside out hoping that the teacher wouldn't notice because I thought I would get in trouble. As soon as I got home, I took the belt off and threw it in the trash. I told my mom what happened and she laughed at me even more.

<insert any team-related PE class, or other activity>.

Still can't do team sports or exercise without being VERY uncomfortable with it. Thank god my competitive drive can kick into over-gear for stuff I actually can do not-so-terribly. But picking up new stuff is NOPE, and I'll just NOPE myself to the NOPE-town, population NOPE.
