Are these Classes or Therapy?

Over on My Ice Cream Diary you can see I got tagged for a Meme. I loved college and could have stayed there for years taking all the classes I wanted to take but never got around to. With this Meme I get to think up some courses I really wish were offered somewhere near me.

Here is the assignment :
Devise a list of 5-10 courses you would take to fix your life. It’s more fun to be in classes with friends, so include one class from the person who tagged you that you’d also like to take. Tag five.

I wouldn't mind taking all the classes that my Ice Cream Loving Friend mentioned but these first two were ones I could really use right now!

Parenting With Hypnosis. Wouldn't this just make it all so much easier. You are getting sleepy, and when you awake you will be unable to roll your eyes and love cleaning your room.

Building Addictions To Housework. This would be a pharmaceutical class that would facilitate the use of synthesised hormones that have been found in women who love to clean. It would also teach how to use aversion therapy to train the body to not enjoy sitting and reading a good book, or watching a great black and white movie. (Wouldn't it be nice if cleaning house were what I woke up in the morning looking forward to doing. Maybe then there would be less clutter in my house to watch sway in the next earthquake).

Here are a few more that I thought would be fun or useful.

Creativity 202 - I could really use a class that exercises the grey matter and makes me think in different ways. I feel like I am just doing what others have already done and nothing original. And I need to find new ways to teach old topics. (Math isn't coming easily for Sophie)

Ballroom dance - I went to BYU and didn't take a Ballroom dance class. Now I watch Dancing with Stars and really want to take a dancing class. Not that I want to wear those outfits but the dancing part looks like a lot of fun. Good exercise too! (A babysitter is provided so spouses can attend too!)

Writing/Grammer/Spelling - I made it through college thanks to spell check. I could really use a course to improve my abilities to express myself with the written word. Then maybe my posts wouldn't be riddled with errors and run on sentences. (And I am supposed to teach my children this! Hopefully the teacher will learn right along with the student.)

Saying "No"- This is a class to teach graceful ways of saying "No" to some of the many "opportunites" that are given to you. This may end up being an AA type class for the people who just can't tell people they are too busy to add one more thing to their schedule. There will also be lessons on how to not feel guilty about saying "No" once you can say it. Provided with the course is a time turner like Hermione Granger used in 3rd Harry Potter book. This is used only to help you fulfill obligations you have already signed up for. Time turners will be returned to instructor at mid term. No you can't keep them!

Now to tag a few people.
No... after that last class description I don't want to add to anyones to do list. So if you want... participate. It was fun to think about.

I will go to any class that includes free babysitting!!! I am a master at saying "no" except when asked to babysit. I can't say no because I can never ever ever find a babysitter when I need it so I know how desperate people can be when they need a babysitter. I just wish someone would return the favor.

I'm ok with spelling, it's teaching writing to my children that scares me to death. I honestly need to learn how to write better myself as my blogging daily proves.
