High School Daze

Barbara, over at TeleportingWeena, wants to teleport us back to our high school days. She asked us to “think about your SENIOR year in High School. The longer ago it was, the more fun the answers will be!”

Alrighty then. Since I graduated from high school before many of you were even born, this should tons of fun!

1. Did you know your current significant other?

No. I met her 14 years later.

2. Make and year of car?

I mostly drove my mother’s car, a bronze, 1961 Corsair Monza. It was a POS car that I nicknamed “the golden garbage can.”38BF893E-1D2C-4FA6-BCA1-FE74AF85F957

I worked part time at a local Sears & Roebuck store.

My parents’ home in a suburb of Washington, DC.

    It wasn’t the first car I drove, but the car my dad bought and put in my name after a while was that same bronze/gold color. It had issues (although not with the engine, and it was a clean car bought from an old lady). After not too long, my husband and I replaced it with a taupe Ford Taurus (new, when they had a good reputation). The car I drove for years in high school, when my mother (who was a teacher with school hours a lot like mine) wasn’t diving it, was a metallic green Le Sabre. (I didn’t drive it to school; I walked to school, about ten minutes out my back door.)

      It was something like this, I suppose, except we bought it new later than this ’74 model.

      I enjoyed a cutting-edge Pontiac Bonneville with advanced technology
      and — especially — it’s great stereo, in the nineties.
      (It was a dark green. Too dark, too hot.)

        (Apparently, that could’ve been had in a similar gold… with a “camel” leather rather than black interior.)

      Oh gosh. World History, US History, Social Studies, Government & Politics. As to Art, I think it was two semesters. I was a “high potential, low achiever.”
