What's the pacer test? D:
The pacer is a test in gym class/PE that
brings a shiver of despair down the spine
of any unfortunate soul who has gone
through it before. And it's usually done at
least once a year.
Students line up on one side of the gym,
eyeing nervously the painted line before
the opposite wall that will decide their
fate. The teacher hits play on the stereo
and a cheery woman's voice echoes
through the gymnasium. fuck that
woman’s happy demeanor. She explains
the rules as the kids wait anxiously. Get
to the other line before the beep plays.
Simple enough, right?
"Ready? Begin!" she calls, and the gut
wrenching “beep? plays after.
The kids awkwardly half jog to the other
line, with about 3 or 4 seconds before
the next beep. Each time the horrendous
noise plays they run back and forth to
the lines. “Level one, complete” she
says, as to pat you on the back for what
little victory you’ve achieved.
