Class of '91

I found this while surfing on BE, from Blonde Librarian.

A quick recap of your senior year of high school (aka "the glory days"):

What year was it?
1991 (Yeah, yeah, yeah. You're just jealous cos it's a palindrome.)

What were your three favorite bands?
Well, they're not all bands, but Milli Vanilli, Beastie Boys, and Bobby Brown. (Some things never change, I guess.)

What was your favorite outfit?
I liked pullover sweaters for some reason then. Also had this maroon and white striped Levis t-shirt that I wore until the fabric disintegrated into dust. And tapered-leg jeans. lol No, they weren't tight-rolled. That was sooo 9th grade.

What was up with your hair?
Nothing wild. I had more, and no gray hairs.

Who were your best friends?
I dunno. Jack, Rickey, David, Jonathan, Kevin, Amy, Emily, Marlo, Marcy.

What did you do after school?
Detention? I dunno. I had a job at a grocery store that I'd go to two or three days a week. If I was off, sometimes we'd play basketball. I'd go to watch the girls volleyball games sometimes.

Did you take the bus?
No. Not after I was old enough to drive. I drove my baby blue 1984 Ford Escort hatchback with sport stripes on the door and louvers on the back window (aka "The Love-mobile"). Actually, I think that was 11th grade, but whatever.

Who did you have a crush on?
Alison. Shelly. Umm, that's all I can think of. Oh, and probably a teacher or two. (Let's see, there was Miss Letourneau and... what?) Most of the girls I had crushes on were older and were no longer in school.

Did you fight with your parents?

Who did you have a CELEBRITY crush on?
Wow, I can't remember back that far. Loni Anderson? ROFL OK, I'm not that old.

Did you smoke cigarettes?

Did you lug all of your books around in your backpack all day because you were too nervous to find your locker?
ROFL Uh, no. I loved going to my locker. It was a time to socialize with all my locker neighbors. Although I used to have a recurring dream that I was in school and could never remember my locker combination.

Did you have a 'clique'?
No. I liked the standard Bic pen with the "no-roll" barrell. Or the four-color pen, with red, blue, black, and green ink. It was great for writing and color-coding three-part rap songs.

Did you have "The Max" like Zach, Kelly, and Slater?
I wish. The best place we had to hang out was at this girl's house that had a big room upstairs above their garage. It had a big sectional sofa, TV, microwave, pool table, mini fridge, etc. We'd go there after football games, watch Cheers reruns, play spades, and shoot pool.

Admit it, were you popular?
Well, everyone knew me. Especially after The Potpourri Incident and the Gym Window Incident. I could relate to the popular people and the not-so-popular people, so it was cool.

Who did you want to be just like?
In school? Nobody. I guess I wanted to be like Mike. Sometimes I dream, that he is me. You got to know that's how I dream to be...

What did you want to be when you grew up?
I think I wanted to be a computer programmer or a journalist, like a sports writer.

Where did you think you'd be at the age you are now?
Not here. I thought I'd be married. Thought I'd have a kid or two. Thought I'd be living somewhere else. Let's see, that would be no, no, and no. OK, that's it. Screw you guys, I'm moving to New York.

"I had a friend was a big baseball player, back in high school. He could throw that speed ball by you, make you look like a fool, boy..."
