i want to teach a class based only on 1) gary lutz's believer essay and 2) the question below


WHAT ARE SOME VERY INTERESTING THINGS WE ARE USUALLY TOO EMBARRASSED TO TALK ABOUT

1) The way your spit looks after eating an Oreo.
2) Not liking your baby or finding your baby ugly.
3) When the person you're sleeping with is lying on your arm and you want to move your arm, you have the irrational feeling that if you move the arm incorrectly whatever feelings between you and the other naked person will die and you know this is irrational but you don't move your arm. This one may not be gender neutral.
4) Oh fuck. George Carlin already did this.

I really liked the Lutz's article on the sentence. I love how closely he looks at each sentence right down to the sound play of letters. I think it would be amazing to teach with that kind of attention to the sentence.
