In Ontario, when I went to school, if you were going to university, you had to take 5 years of high school. You graduated in grade 12 and went on for 1 more year in grade 13.
I did well in sports and enjoyed health class so I took PE/Health for 4 years. It was only required for 1-2 years. I wanted to take PE/Health in grade 13 but just 1 thing stopped me.
(guys I went to school with at the school's 50th anniversary last night)
From the time I started high school, I knew these stairs loomed in my future. I had no qualms running around the entire school, going up and down other stair cases, running for 90 minutes straight. I just couldn't do THESE stairs. So I didn't take PE that year. For real.
You see why, right? Those are steeeep stairs!!!
