High School Memories
I live spitting distance from a high school, and on the road by it was a piece of neon poster board attached to a street sign. It contained one word in big black marker. And then I passed another one, and another. The message was:
I give the poor lad points for initiative and creativity, but I feel sorry for the girl and all her friends who have most certainly texted and posted it on FB and Twitter to the entire known universe.
Which reminds me of my prom. My boyfriend was the biggest guy in the whole school, every dad's nightmare with the big black leather jacket and matching boots. The geeky top ten Honor student paired up with the big goon. Great matchmaking.
I saved my corsage, even preserved it with silica gel. Because, you know, I was totally going to marry this guy and I was totally going to have his babies, and we were totally going to live happily ever after.
And then of all the gall, he left me for that freak of a girl with black lipstick! How could he!
My heart broken, I took my corsage out of its plastic box, tossed it in the middle of the driveway, and lit it with a match. Teenage girl revenge will. be. had!
It wouldn't light. The thing was so well mummified, it just wouldn't. light.
Not to be easily defeated, and being the daughter of a man who Owns and Operates a Hardware Store and has every tool known to man, I went to the garage and found the Bernz-o-Matic propane torch.
Oh yeah. The sound of a spark lighter grating is immensely satisfying...
I think it took a whole 10 minutes to reduce that corsage to ashes, but it was done.
I only saw him once after that, on the road shortly after I got my driver's license. I was driving home from school in mom's 1971 Jaguar XJ6 (yeah!) when I passed by him in his beater van. I gave him the one finger salute and hit the gas.
I still have a picture somewhere of me and my Husband That Never Was in our prom attire. Sometimes I wonder what happened to him, whether he's straightened himself out or he's in prison.
I don't miss high school.
Do share your favorite (or not-so-favorite) high school memories!

I didn't attend my high school prom because I was too busy drinking and racing my GTO. I didn't attend the prom with my HS sweetheart and senior-still wife because my butt was away in the military!
Proms and I don't have a very good history. But I still have the same wife, and I guess that's more important.
