SkADaMo Day 8

November 10, 2011

When I was in elementary school… a gazillion years ago, we used to do this drill called “duck and cover.” You’d be in class, minding your own business, when a scary, air-raidy sounding alarm would go off. You were then expected to drop down to the floor, crawl under your desk and cover your head with your hands. This was a drill designed to protect you against a nuclear attack.

You heard me.

A nuclear attack. Duck and Cover. Mmmm hmmmm.

I guess they figured it was an easier position to be in to kiss your tookus good-bye.

Anywho, this here is a kinder, gentler, sillier take on the theme… probably just as effective too.

So, yeah, keeping up with the SkADaMo and the PiBoIdMo as well. Feeling pretty pleased with my bad self.

    The desks we had in Detroit were lined with special, nuclear fallout mojo so we’d all survive an attack.
    Detroit was too big to fail in the 60s.

    Ah yes, the days when a school desk could protect you from a nuclear attack: simpler times 😛

    this is great, love his slippers and I remember those drills. I always thought they were pointless. I think they still do similar drills here for tornado weather :o, at least it makes a little more sense.

    Brilliant duck picture.
    We never had this in my school. We did, however, have a drama teacher who left the room and then came back in after 15 minutes pretending to have a gun, she came in screaming at us to ‘get down’… we were suppose to improvise, it was a lesson… I spent most of it behind the piano worried for myself and scared of the ‘crazy’ drama teacher
