High School Meme

Grace posted this meme and since I am bored and not feeling very creative I'm posting it too...

1. Who was your best friend?
Bill. I spent, like every evening with Bill and he was a great buddy. Eric was a close second.

2. What sports did you play? None, just like now.

3. What kind of car did you drive? A blue 1969 Toyota Corona station wagon like this (except it was a wagon).

4. It’s Friday night, where were you? At Bill's house, unless it was football season then I was running sound at the game.

5. Were you a party animal? Uh, yeah.

6. Were you considered a flirt? Since second grade.

7. Were you in band, orchestra, or choir? Choir, both the main choir and the men's ensemble.

8. Were you a nerd? Oh yeah. Big time. But in a totally cool way, of course. ahem.

9. Did you get suspended/expelled? I was sent out of AP English class, only once, for asking the teacher to move aside so I could copy something from the board. I did so silently by motioning with my hand, and the teacher took offense at my gesture. I subsequently missed the answer to the question on the quiz that would have been answered by the note I wished to take. The word to be defined was "mendicant", a beggar.

10. Can you sing the fight song? I think there was a song but I have no idea what it was.

11. Who was your favorite teacher? Mr. Ray Doherty (theatre) and Mr. Ray Dieteker (electronics). They both smoked (cigarettes and a pipe, respectively) and had catchphrases ("Get your own show!" and "Just bend the wires!", respectively) and were named Ray.

12. School mascot? I got nuthin.

13. Did you go to Prom? Absolutely not.

14. If you could go back and do it over, would you? If I could start over in High School knowing what I do now, I would, because I would totally rock at it.

15. What do you remember most about graduation? Sitting next to Nancy.

16. Where were you on senior skip day? I graduated (with all required credits and courses) as a Junior.

17. Did you have a job your senior year? I worked for the school (yes, they paid students) in the AV department setting up and running video for classes. I was a model employee.

18. Where did you go most often for lunch? The deli across the street. I typically had a deli sandwich on a French roll, a quart of whole milk, and a Three Musketeers bar. I ate like this all the time and at 16 I was 6' 2" and 160 pounds.

19. Have you gained weight since then? About 50 pounds.

20. What did you do after graduation? Moved out and got a job building electronics. (Thanks Ray.)

21. Who was your Senior prom date? See #13.

22. Are you going / did you go to your 10 year reunion? No way.

23. Who was your home room teacher? I didn’t have homeroom.

24. Who will repost this after you? I hope someone will since it would be lame if I was alone on this one.
