I know y’all have been waiting with bated breath for the next note. And I also know I keep saying this, but I really should post more often.
So, at long last: here’s a gem from 10th grade (1980-81). While you enjoy it, ask yourself the following questions:
Would you appear in public wearing all white?
Do you remember being completely mortified in 10th grade biology by the chapter on reproduction?
Do your kids see you more often than once or twice a week?
Do you feel spirited?
How do, mademoiselle?
I hope you’re not so spastic today! You ought to be in our biology class. Mr. S. says things you wouldn’t believe. And today I was looking through the book & discovered the chapter on reproduction—w/ illustrations! There’s no way in the world I’m gonna do that chapter w/ J. as my partner!!
I have some good news. Mr. H. ordered a couple more desks yesterday so there is a lot of room left for you—4 whole desks. Pleeeaassse switch to 3rd pd! Pleeze?
Do you feel spirited? I honestly did have on all white this morning. I took it off ’cuz it looked weird & ‘cuz I wouldn’t dare going into Hist. & Math in all white! Juniors would murder me!
Have fun at the game. I wish I could come, but I already promised D. I would sit tonite. I hope she comes home super early ‘cuz I desparately need sleep. I even have a 9:30 a.m. hockey scrimmage tomorrow. Ho, boy—no sleep!
What are we gonna do ‘bout Sun. I think C. said she could take us. All we need is a ride home. Maybe I can—I’ll have to check next time I see my mom. I haven’t seen her since Mon. from 5-6 pm. [I’m pretty sure this note was written on a Friday, so WTF?]
I just goofed on a Math test.
I have a Hist. test on Monday; a French dialog on Monday; & a biology Chapt. test on Wed. Plus I have to read 1 English book & 2 history books. Plus I have to make all those Christmas gifts. Also, I have to dance, babysit, guitar lesson (when do I ever practice?), build a float, & do all this other crap. I AM SO OVER MY HEAD!! HELP ME, I’M DROWNING!
I feel like Frampton’s song:
I’m swimming in a circle
I feel I’m going down
There has to be a fool to play my part
Well, I better finish, it’s 1 minute ‘till the bell rings.
