Sunday Stealing: A High School Meme

You can play here.

1. Did you date someone from your school?


2. Did you marry someone from your high school?

What? Without dating them first? That would have been kind of premature, don't you think?

3. Did you car pool to school?

No, I walked there.

4. What kind of car did you have?

I didn't have a car.

5. What kind of car do you have now?

I still don't have a car.

6. Its Friday night...where are you now?

On Friday, I was travelling home for the weekend, and then I had tea, watched television and messed about on my computer.

7. It is Friday night...where were you then?

Probably at home, having tea and watching television. Either that or around at a friend's house.

8. What kind of job did you have in high school?

I didn't have a job.

9. What kind of job do you do now?

I mess about with computers.

10. Were you a party animal?

No. That was afterwards, once I'd discovered alcohol.

11. Were you considered a flirt?

No. That was afterwards, once I'd discovered alcohol.

12. Were you in band, orchestra, or choir?

I was in the boys' choir, but there were only about five of us, and we were probably fairly awful.

13. Were you a nerd?

Yeah, I've always been a nerd.

14. Did you get suspended from school?


15. Can you sing the fight song?

Here in the UK, schools don't have fight songs, so unless you're referring to "Eye of the Tiger" the answer's no.

16. Who was/were your favorite teacher?

Probably one of my physics teacher; a trendy teacher who managed to make his lessons entertaining.

17. Where did you sit during lunch?

At home. I only lived five moinutes away and the food tended to be better there.

18. What was your school's full name?

Well, it started out as Fleetwood Grammar School, and then it merged with the local comprehensive school to become Fleetwood Hesketh High School.

19. Where did you party the most?

I didn't party a lot at school.

20. What was your school mascot?

We didn't have one.

21. Would you do it again?

I don't think the uniform would fit now, and I'd feel a bit conspicuous, but it might be worth it for the holiday entitlement.

22. Did you have fun at Prom?

We never had a prom. We had a dinner, and that was okay.

23. Do you still talk to the person you went to Prom with?

Well, as I said before, and you clearly didn't hear, I didn't go to Prom.

24. Are you planning on going to your next reunion?

I'd go if there was one, but we don't have reunions.

25. Do you still talk to people from school?

Rarely, since they're scattered about now , but it happens. One of the girls I knew there is now my dentist, and another one occasionally checks my ticket on the train.

26. What are/were your school's colors?

I can't remember. There was definitely blue in it somewhere, because at the open evening prior to starting, my mother - who had a natural gift for embarrassing myself and my sister - remarked how the blue in my tie would go with my eyes, and thereafter a classmate who'd been in earshot kept reminding me of this whenever he had a chance to.

Thanks for the comments.

Bud - Getting called a hoot by a hootmeister like yourself is indeed a complement.

A Blog In The Rough - No, I like the American questions, because I just have to be flippant and sarcastic and move on, rather than thinking about an answer. Flippancy and sarcasm are areas I excel at, whereas answering questions is an area I don't.
