Underwater Basket-Weaving
Cowgirl Nymph
I wrote this to a Thimbleful Thursday prompt.

“These ‘foundation’ classes are ridiculous,” complained Nea, tossing her dark curls as she spoke. “I know the university didn’t want us, but really!”

Eric looked around the group and sighed. “I wanted to get into university and the disadvantage funding provisions are great, but could they insult our intelligence more if they tried?”

“I know; we did this stuff years ago in high school,” Hilary growled. “Perhaps they’re trying to bore us into leaving, and this class-.” She stopped talking as the instructor arrived and closed the door.

“Welcome,” he smiled, “to Underwater Basket-Weaving or, as we in Political Science like to call it, Memetic and Political Subversion 101.”

That's a fascinating little tidbit.

I'm sure actual underwater basket-weaving would be more difficult than everyone keeps thinking. ;)

I remember cane work or basket weaving or something like that being done by 'the big boys' when I was a little girl in primary school. It involved buckets of water because you had to keep the canes wet so that they would bend and not break.

I went to a very small school, 2 teachers, and the basket weaving thing may have just been that teacher because when I got to be that age basket weaving didn't happen.

That makes sense! (re: keeping the canes wet) Too bad you didn't get to do it too, I'm sure it would have been educational.
