Push ups. Sit ups. Jumping jacks. Repeat.
John Watkin, 59, of Chapel Hill, North Carolina can remember those exercises like they happened yesterday, even though it was 40 years ago in 1978.
It was punishment. All high school kids get in trouble. But this wasn’t a normal reprimand.
Watkin was naked and dripping wet while his housemaster, a long time teacher at the prestigious Lawrenceville School in New Jersey, sat in his brown leather chair a few feet away and watched him, instructing him on which exercises to complete.
