Here Is A Tale From The Memory Of One Lads PE Days
This is the story of a lad who attended Wick High School many years ago.
The lad enjoyed model yachting which took place every Saturday at
Sarclett Loch. This entailed running up and down one side or other of the
loch about half a dozen times wearing a pair of waders, boots which came
up well above the knee.
"I can't take gym today sir"
"I've got Synovitis in my knee sir"
"Who said you have Synovitis"
"Dr. Turner sir"
"And how did you come to get Synovitis or HOUSEMAID'S KNEE as it is commonly known" asked Bert as the lad turned red while the rest of the class fell around laughing
"Ba- - - -d"
muttered a very embarrassed lad not quite silent enough.
Shortly afterwards the lad rejoined his classmates. His right hand was now every bit as red as his face and every bit as sore as his knee. Fortunately he had a tub of foul smelling, tarry, black paste.
Moral :- teachers should never belt lads who possess tubs of foul smelling, tarry, black paste unless they are prepared to have their trousers dry cleaned a few weeks later.
