but in this discussion it does. ( Before anyone wants to lop my head off for any future misunderstanding of what p.e. stands for, it stands for private eye. ) That being said, during jb's discussion of what people thought p.e. stood for, majority of the answers were physical education, some with a side note on how much it was intensely disliked. Okay, that was me. I hated phys-ed (shorten for physical education to clarify) or gym class. It was the most tortuous time at school. It started in kindergarden and ended only when I graduated high school. I only have bad memories (perhaps one good, I believe I was absent from class that day). I was usually picked the last for the "team" and being the smallest usually did not match up to the athletic prowess of my larger classmates, nor was I faster than anyone (anyone at all) and there were no prizes for being the slowest, nor did I swim, however that did not stop them from tossing me in the pool under the pretense of "teaching" me to and the list goes on. Does anyone else have fond memories of physical education class?

jb, it did you well, then. Especially the imagination part, but I don't know about the avoiding stuff, you seem to head stuff on here in myLot, rather than avoid.

it doesn't matter now. the dictionary doesnt tell people what words mean, poeple tell what words mean. if the majoritity of the population says that p.e stands for physical education then thats what it stands for.

Hi Stevvensitu, welcome to myLot. Actually although my title of this discussion is telling you that p.e. does not stand for physical education, its meant a bit as a joke. The basis of the discussion is to recollect a memory of yours from a physical education class in school, whether it was good or bad. The joke part is that p.e. is an interest developed by another myLotter. To read more about that you will have to go to the other discussions in this interest. Its worth it. And you are correct, the majority of the people do believe that P.E. does stand for physical education, but it stands for private eye in myLot in this interest.
