I had one quarter of “home economics” in like 7th grade. We had to choose two electives. In those slots, you could choose choir or band, or a language, or one of these wheels. “wheel A” was woodworking and two other things, and “wheel B” was metalworking, home ec, and… Quest? which was some kind of self-empowerment thing for young people? This is weird to drudge up and totally off-topic.
In home ec, we had little tiny kitchens. I remember they told us not to try to eat powdered sugar; I did and choked (just a little, I was fine). I had never had a “sloppy joe” before and thought ours were delicious. We had a lot of trouble mopping the floor because we would just keep getting it dirty again. I’m also remembering that I did 3d art at some point (maybe in 8th grade?) and … sewing? I sewed a pouch using a stitch whose name I forgot but you just loop it around over and over again. whipstitch, I guess.
