Celebrate Karen Valentine’s Day
Weds, 2/22/12, the Other Valentine’s Day
Did you forget your sweety last week? Well you get one more chance, coming up this Wednesday, February 22. You may remember Karen Valentine as the hot young teacher of unbelievably mature high school students at Walt Whitman High School, from the early ’70s TV drama Room 222. I know I sure do. With her succulent lips, and long auburn hair, in those short, short skirts, she awakened something primal in, at the time, a pre-teen me. So, I declare February 22, or 2/22 as Karen Valentine’s Day.
Can you think of a better day to celebrate the prurient interests of the pre-pubescent, than 2/22? Like I said before, if you blew it on Valentines Day the first time around, here’s your chance to get straight with your love, but if you already did that right, use 2/22 to celebrate a favorite hot teacher in your life.
I had two hot teachers in my educational history: Miss Oches in 5th grade, who looked like Laurie from the Partridge Family, and taught us to speak German. I can still vividly picture Miss. Oches, and I can still sing Three Blind Mice in German. Vicky Ferriman, who always wore tight black polyester pants, started her teaching career in 1978 and taught me Geometry that year, as a Junior in High-School. That was the only math class I ever aced.
So, to Karen Valentine, Miss. Oches, Vicky Ferriman, and all of the attractive people who choose a career in education, thank you for making school suck less than it otherwise would.
