27 Things That Happened In Every PE Class
Never forget the sickening smell of adolescent sweat.
Playing parachute games was the highlight of compulsory PE.
Unfortunately this was exclusively a primary school privilege.
You also got to throw around greying beanbags and pretend hula hooping was a sport.
And half of the class was spent pulling out blue mats that were suspiciously heavy.
Everyone would always wear these shoes.
You were filled with excitement when you went into the hall and saw the climbing frame was out.
And the colour of your bib during benchball determined who your allies and nemeses were for the next hour.

Because this wasn't a valid excuse to sit out and you'd end up having to wear something from the manky spare kit box.
The changing rooms were always filled with drama.
And the girls changing room would always smell of Impulse and Charlie mixed with sweat.
You were really proud when you did a successful forward roll.
Only to be showed up by that one kid who took gymnastics outside of school.
Sports day was either the best or worst day of the year for you.
Which is why the egg and spoon race was a blessing for the physically challenged.
