This is about senior year of high school.
1. Who was your best friend?
Senior year? No one really. The guy who was my best friend left for the army. Though, you’d never know we were best friends what with me trying to snake his girl. Yeah, senior year, I guess Brandon would have been it.
2.What sports did u play?
Nothing for the school. Lots of paintball though.
3. What kind of car did you drive?
’88 ford ranger. The car had ground effects on it. It was so counter to everything I was. I was so metal.
4. It's Friday night, where were you?
Brandon’s house gearing up for a paintball game.
5. Were you a party animal?
6. Were you considered a flirt?
7. Ever skip school?
Uhh, yeah, pretty much.
8. Were you a nerd?
I liked nerdy things. Like computers, and D&D and magic the gathering. Though I think I was out of the last two by senior year.
9. Were you in any clubs?
10. Did you get suspended/expelled?
Never expelled. Suspended many many times. I think I hold the record for number of times suspended while suspended. I was originally given a 3 day “in school” for smoking (Chud! You rebel!). then I was suspended because the bitch thought I was playing games on my calculator when in fact I was doing homework so she sent me to the office, proceeded to go through my shit and found some highly objectionable prose and short stories I had written. Those got me suspended for an additional 5 days. Finally the next day I caused civil unrest in the suspension (planning?) room for the blatant disregard for my personal possessions the day prior. This earned me another 3 days but all time to be served out of school. Oh such angst! What a rebel!
11. Can you sing the fight song?
Yeah it was a rip off of the UM fight song.
12. Who was your favorite teacher?
Mr. Markiewicz, Mr. Borso or Sgt. Canon. All three were great.
13. Favorite class?
Senior year? Independent reading. I think I burned through half the damn library in that class.
14. What was your school's full name?
Winston Churchill High School
15. School mascot?
A charger. For those of you not in the know, apparently it’s a knight on a horse.
16. Did you go to dances?
Senior year, no. well, I did go to military ball. I think.
17. If you could go back and do it over, would you?
Not at all. I couldn’t wait to be out then and I have no reason to want to do that over again.
18. What do you remember most about graduation?
Wanting it to be over so I could get the fuck outta dodge.
19. Favorite memory of your Senior Year?
Ha. For Radio and TV we had to shoot all the productions that the school put on (ie. dance recitals, fashion shows, plays etc). for one production in particular, I think it was the capa dance senior thingy. Some guy played Angie for a chick named Angie and she danced around. Anyhow, a bunch of us had gone in on a fifth of the captain. So I’m standing between the classroom and the Master control room which is also sort of backstage. I had my pop (coke) opened and emptied to the desired level and began to pour in the captain. As I’m doing so Boone (the teacher) came thundering down the stairs with his coffee in his hand and a pint of something clear that he was pouring into said coffee. We both froze, both caught. He cleared his throat, nonchalantly said, “Mr. Dorton”. I nodded and responded, “Boone”. And off he walked.
20. Did you have a job your senior year?
Yes, but then my dad fired me.
21. Where did you go most often for lunch?
Burger King at Westland Mall. Which I don’t believe is there any longer.
22. What did you do after graduation?
Moved out to the sticks and started working horses and rodeo.
23. Where are most of your classmates?
I honestly don’t know. I haven’t stayed in touch with most of them.
24. Are you going/did you go to your 10-year reunion?
I don’t know. It’ll be this coming year and I really don’t know if I’ll be going.
25. Who was your worst teacher?
Lt. Col. Kuratko. He’s a douche.
26. Who did you date in High School?
You can’t call what I did “dating”. That’s all I’ll say on that topic.
27. Did your life turn out different then you would have expected?
Hrmm… 27, living at home after two failed attempts at college, a real estate career that’s in the shitter, delivering pizzas, unable to commit to anything much less one single job for more than a year. Actually, yeah, a little different than I expected.
