7. Home Ec

 Once a week we were bussed

to a different school

where the boys were taught to use tools

and the girls were taught to sew and bake. 

 

I wanted to make the birdhouse

and not the gingham apron,

but once again, there was no choice.

 

I remember the cake best —

the pineapple upside-down cake.

It was just tasty enough

to make me think for one day, just one day 

that we were the ones

that got the better deal.
