Moments with Joey - That Backward Feeling

Pin It

SCENE 1, INTERIOR. LATE AFTERNOON, AUDITORIUM. The class has traveled to another school for a presentation. The students all find seats in two rows and the teacher sits amongst them. The music starts and the lights dim as the presentation begins. A 5th grade boy is sitting next to his teacher and is looking forward. After a few minutes, he begins to squirm in his seat and then taps his teacher on the shoulder.

JOEY: Hey, Mr. Z? Do you know what?

TEACHER: [The teacher shakes his head]. No, what is it?

[The boy drops his voice to a whisper].

JOEY: I think I put my underwear on backward this morning.

[The teacher sits in silence for a beat].

TEACHER: I’m not sure what you want me to do about that, Joey. [Pause]. Do you want to go to the bathroom so you can take care of it?

JOEY: No, I just wanted to tell you about it…and you know what? It really doesn’t feel bad, either. I kind of like it.

TEACHER: Good for you Joey, good for you.

[Fade to black].

Wow! What to think about that? Joey, Joey, Joey.... :) You just have to love them. Too good!

You know you're cool when you don't care if your underwear is on backwards. Yeah, super cool!

Amazing that it didn't bother him, what with that silly little pocket you boys have up front, I would think the extra seams around his butt would have been annoying. Silly me.

There is something seriously wrong with this one, TF. But I guess that is what makes him so endearing.

I can't believe he shared that with you! Well, maybe I can but it seems that if they were tighty whites they would feel funny in the croutch...

I'm assuming they were boxers…I didn't ask.

Connie said...

Yeah, he feels comfortable with you or likes to see if there's a reaction that comes with his revelatory comment.

Tell Joey that you know a lady that was on the way into the sealing room for her wedding when she looked down and couldn't figure out why her garments were nearly up to her throat.

When she got back in the Brides Room her escort announced to everyone in the dressing area that said Bride had put her garments on backwards because she got dressed in the dark.

It happens to the best of us. Er.. I mean the best of people...

He's setting a new trend.

I put mine on backwards the other day and wondered why it took me so long to figure it out.
