Everybody's Doing It!

Since I griped about teenagers yesterday I'll revisit my teen years today.

1. Did you date someone from your school?
A couple of someones

2. Did you marry someone from your high school?

3. Did you car pool to school?
That would have been a colossal waste of time since I lived across the street from the school

4. What kind of car did you have?

5. What kind of car do you have now?
Beulah, the minivan of looooove

6. It's Friday night...where are you (then)?

7. It is Friday night...where are you (now)?
But it's not Friday night now

8. What kind of job did you have in high school?
Chief cook and bottle washer in training, wiper of butts, painter of walls....hhhmmm, not much has changed except not being in training anymore. I now have advanced degrees in these.

9. What kind of job do you do now?
All the crap no one else around here is willing to do

10. Were you a party animal?
I never dressed like the school mascot at parties.

11. Were you considered a flirt?
I was an enigma

12. Were you in band, orchestra, or choir?
I was third chair kazoo and I was asked to sing tenor...ten or twelve miles away

13. Were you a nerd?
I read the encyclopedia and dictionary for entertainment, what do you think?

14. Did you get suspended or expelled?
I wore suspenders once and expelled some pretty nasty stuff when I had a bad chest cold.

15. Can you sing the fight song?
Blaaaah blah blah blah blaaaah blah blah blah

16. Who was/were your favorite teacher(s)?
The ones who respected their students.

17. Where did you sit during lunch?
On my butt

19. When did you graduate?
When I successfully completed all my required courses and subsequently marched across the stage to collect my diploma.

20. What was your school mascot?
The banana slug

21. If you could go back and do it again, would you?
Lemme think about that for half a second...NO!

22. Did you have fun at Prom?
Define "fun"

23. Do you still talk to the person you went to Prom with?
See #21. Oddly enough, when I had to have my well pump replaced last month the guy who came to do the job turned out to be the nephew of my prom date (with whom I have had no contact in over 20 years). He remembered me as "that really whacked chick, Uncle J brought around." Nice to see you again too, ya little twerp.

24. Are you planning on going to your next reunion?
I haven't gone to any yet, why break tradition?

25. Do you still talk to people from school?
Nary a one

I might do this survey on my blog. I'm weird in that I liked high school!

Jazz said...

God how I hated high school.

Suldog said...

Again, our answers match at a level that belies coincidence. Prom? Feh. School itself? Double Feh!

Craver Vii said...

What timing! Just last week, I found some high school buds through Facebook. We haven't connected yet, but I hope to see some of them before too long.

Tenor twelve miles away... hahahaha!

Kat said...

Ooooo. That is a fun meme. I may have to join in on that one. :)

"that really whacked chick, Uncle J brought around." hahaha...!!! nothing much changed there as well huh...??? ;) :P

Desmond Jones said...

An enigma and a nerd. . . See, I KNEW we had a lot in common. . .

I should tell you my Prom story sometime. . .

furiousBall said...

high school was not a good time for me at all

S said...

Yeah skip the reunion, its a lot of money and a complete waste of time.
Better to just go on a date or something with your pals.

10. The Muskrats?

22. Don't be modest Michelle. You coined the term, "I'm OFF, like a prom dress"!

Yes...You may slug me...:P

Awe... High School was such a mixed bag... well at least you know you're long past those days and you have no regrets nor do you want to go beck :) That's so refreshing huh??

lecram said...

Banana slug, huh?

Cooper said...

oh dear...looks like the gauntlet has been thrown....

Fred said...

Love it. I can relate to much of this, and I can also so many of my students answering the same way.

truckdriver_sefl said...

I can say this for sure I could care less about going back either.

david mcmahon said...

Some great answers there, Lime! I didn't need car pooling either, as I went to a boarding school, but it was a long flight there and back each year!

for a different kind of girl said...

If we had a fight song, I didn't hear it until graduation (which would indicate that on the rare times I went to sporting events, I was just biding time until I could leave), and even then, I couldn't tell you what it was. I got my diploma, walked out, and have never looked back. Blech.

Seamus said...

Hmmmmmmm...you just skated right around the Friday night questions didn't you? ;)

Jocelyn said...

Ah, yes.

High school was the last time I agreed to remain in a situation that made me feel that bad.
