Sunday Stealing: The High School Questions



What's this all about? All types of questions stolen from every corner of the blogosphere. (Go HERE to find out more.) This week we have The High School Questions.
  1. Did you date someone from your school?

    Yes. Many someones.
     
  2. Did you marry someone from your high school?

    Yes. Only one, though.
     
  3. Did you car pool to school?

    I was car-pooled. Never had a car of my own back then. I also frequently walked to and from school, since I only lived a few blocks away.
     
  4. What kind of car did you have?

    See answer to #3 above.
     
  5. What kind of car do you have now?

    A nearly-six-year-old Ford Escape. Great car.
     
  6. It's Friday night...where are you now?

    At home with the hubby. Most likely watching basketball or a movie on the tube.
     
  7. It is Friday night...where were you then?

    Depending on the time of year, I would have been at a movie, hanging out at the local drive-in or Dairy Queen, at a football game, or at a play rehearsal. Or at home watching 77 Sunset Strip. (Loved Edd Byrnes as "Kookie.")
     

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

    Didn't have a job when I was in high school.
     
  9. What kind of job do you do now?

    Retired. The best job I've had, so far.
     
  10. Were you a party animal?

    Not really. I went to some parties, but I was a pretty serious student, too. And play rehearsals took up a lot of my free time.
     
  11. Were you considered a flirt?

    I wouldn't think so. I did my fair share, though.
     
  12. Were you in band, orchestra, or choir?

    None of those. I was a speech-and-drama kid.
     
  13. Were you a nerd?

    No. I was "artsy."
     
  14. Did you get suspended from school?

    Certainly not.
     
  15. Can you sing the fight song?

    I can. You don't really want me to.
     
  16. Who was/were your favorite teacher?

    I had one English teacher I loved. But I guess my favorite teacher was the head of the school's speech/drama department. I took a bunch of her classes and worked with her on many stage productions and speech contests.
     
  17. Where did you sit during lunch?

    At a table.
     
  18. What was your school's full name?

    Thomas Alva Edison High School.
     
  19. Where did you party the most?

    As I said, I wasn't really a party person.
     
  20. What was your school mascot?

    The Edison Golden Bear.
     
  21. Would you do it again?

    Go back to high school? No way! I enjoyed school pretty much, but the happiest day of my teenaged life was graduation day.
     
  22. Did you have fun at Prom?

    OK, this is something I've been wondering about. When did "the prom" become just "Prom"? "Going to Prom" sounds so ultimate, like "going to Paris" or "going to Mars." Now in my day (kiddies), you went to THE prom. There were many proms in the course of a school career — recurrent events, not just a singular entity. I attended lots of proms while I was in high school — my school had at least three or four every year. I enjoyed some more than others. If we're talking about my Senior Prom, yes I had a lot of fun.
     
  23. Do you still talk to the person you went to Prom with?

    Again, I'm assuming this is my Senior Prom, right? In that case, yes I do still talk to him. I married him.
     
     
  24. Are you planning on going to your next reunion?

    Not planning on it, but if there is one, I suppose it's possible I might go.
     
  25. Do you still talk to people from school?

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

    Black and gold.
     
All hail to Old Edison, the Black and the Gold!
Long may her colors fly!
Rise all ye sons and ye daughters, too.
Her spirit must not die.
(Rah! Rah! Rah!)
All hail to Old Edison, the Black and the Gold!
What care we for the rest?
So let's give all we've got for Old Edison,
The school that we love best!

  1. I wasn't that much of a party person either.

    1. I'm still not hugely in love with party-going. Especially if it's a party with a lot of people I don't know well. I'm getting to be more and more of a stay-at-home as I get older.

  2. My school only had one prom annually. We had other school dances but they were not called proms. However, we also referred to it as "the prom" even though it was the only one.

    1. We had a lot of other dances too, in addition to the proms. Maybe it was just something about Texans -- we're always looking for a reason to party.

  3. Maybe it became just Prom about the time parents started having to take out a second mortgage to pay for it?

    1. Good one! Yeah, that's probably about right.

Welcome to Joysweb! And thanks for leaving me a comment. I love to hear from visitors. From time to time, I might have to moderate comments - I know that's not very hospitable, so I try to do it only on posts that are more than a few days old. Sorry for the inconvenience!

Also, please note that while I appreciate blog awards, I don't play award tag games. I think you all deserve awards!
