Panic in RP

It was the day of the school Christmas play. Oscar had got dressed without Mum shouting at him, as he was going to be a good boy today. Today was going to be very special. He was going to be one of the Three Wise Men and wear a tunic. This was very funny, because it was like a dress and boys don’t normally get to wear dresses.
“Everyone get changed now,” said Mrs Percival.
Within seconds, Class RP were stripped to vests and pants and pulling on their costumes. Everyone except Oscar.
“Hurry up, Oscar,” said Mrs Percival.
But Oscar froze. He had forgotten to put on his pants that morning. Everyone would see his willy.
He ran into the toilet in tears, locked the door and didn’t come out until the show was over.
“He must have just been nervous,” Mrs Percival reassured Oscar’s mum later.

Naomi, this is hilarious and sad and cheeky- I could so imagine kids weeing themselves with laughter over this.

Poor little guy! And on his special day too! Wonderful. Right inside the mind of a child.

You can't underestimate the panic a five year old goes through at the thought that a girl might see his willy.

I hope to hell my four year old reaches that stage soon. He shows his off to anyone he can.

p.s. - what inspired these short pieces. I read Sue's yesterday.

So real. I remember having a similar experience at about the same age, although it wasn't a willy i was worried people would see. I can still feel the shame. Such a terrible moment captured really well.

I was more scared about the girls seeing my underpants. I ended up missing PE for two weeks by hiding under the table. I got caught when the teacher offered a prize for the first person dressed. I just jumped out, then she remembered that I hadn't been doing PE at all. I was gutted.

Just got this e-mail from my sons' school. Synchronicity. Made me laugh.

This is sweet. Made me giggle. I can remember losing my knickers at a swimming class once. It was horrendous!!!!!

Could do with being a little bit longer, but kids would love it.

My 5 year old nephew would love this - he has a very lavatorial sense of humour.

Great stuff. My only criticism is that I wish it were longer...though as a short piece it works - just felt as though it would also benefit from a build-up of atmosphere.

Poor Oscar.
