  •  I took Shop in 7th grade, (9+ / 0-)

    and home ec in 8th.  They made me leave the room for some of the sewing stuff (because the girls would have to do fittings and change and such, and who knows what I might see [and me with 5 sisters]), but I learned a lot from both classes, and the sewing helped during my navy days - I would sew on new rank patches and such for beer money, and am still a passable cook.  And I can build cabinets and such, solder circuit boards, weld, bend sheet metal, rivet, sew, cut hair...

    But back in the 60's, a boy taking home ec was scandalous!

    I am not religious, and did NOT say I enjoyed sects.
