High School Confidential

1. Who was your best friend?

Tara Nelson - she was 6'1" in 6th grade.

2. Did you play any sports?

Sports for me was running for the bus to catch the 42 downtown to ballet class at 2:30 every day. I did do the shot-put for a second while I was in my I'm Quitting Dance phase.

3. What kind of car did you drive?
I got my first car when I was in my 20s.

4. It’s Friday night. Where were you?
With Tara, trying to get into a bar with fake English accents. "Is this a pub or a disco?" Worked once...

5. Were you a party animal?
Not really, but I did my share of puking.

6. Were you considered a flirt?
Yes. In my own mind, everyone was after me.

7. Were you in the band, orchestra or choir?
No time.

8. Were you a nerd?
When I had to wear my back brace and take it off before gym class. Embarrassing!

9. Were you ever suspended or expelled?
Nope, I was a goody two shoes teachers pet.

10. Can you sing the fight song?
What's a fight song...?

11. Who was your favorite teacher?
Mr. Zutz for English. He made us do an essay every Friday. He set me up for life, man. I was prepped.

12. What was your school mascot?
No idea.

13. Did you go to the Prom?
Two, but in Canada it was "Grad." In Florida, I went with Michael, my gay, not-gay, gay best friend.

14. If you could go back, would you?
Umm, why? I like where I am now.

15. What do you remember most about graduation?
I remember most that I didn't go. As soon as I didn't need to be in class anymore, I hightailed it back to Canada, my ballet school and my boyfriend, in that order.

16. Where were you on Senior Skip Day?
I think we got bussed to Disney...foggy, not sure.

17. Did you have a job your senior year?
Apprenticing with Ballet Florida - it was there, performing in the middle of Romeo and Juliet that my light bulb went on and I decided to dance professionally before I went to teaching school in England (never made it to the teaching school, so I guess I made the right decision).

18. Where did you go most often for lunch?
A&W for Teen Burgers.

19. Have you gained weight since then?
Yep, but not until about 5 years ago when I retired from dancing.

20. What did you do after graduation?
Dance (are you yawning yet? I was a little one dimensional back then).

21. What year did you graduate?

22. Are you going/did you go to your 10 year reunion?
Uh, yeah, that would be 20 year reunion this year, and no.

I did the shot-put at track & field meets when they couldn't find anyone else to volunteer. I even got a few ribbons.

One of my BFF's in high school was super-tall too. She was 6'2" in 7th grade, poor girl.

Did you just ape your mom's accent? Or did you ape the older Manchester accent she may have had at the same age?
