Apparently we’re trapped in high school. Because high school is so grand. Can’t we just agree on that? Definitely!

Everyone is so enthused about high school. Float away on your magic tropic of destinies, for high school is where dreams come true, according to Tinkerbelle and Winnie the Poo. Goooo, High School!

Hello  old classes, old teachers, old stresses. I’d like to greet each and every one of you. Just because you were so great.


Lollipops were awarded to me in middle school, just for existing. Man it was nice to have a theatre arts director who also played the role of Candy Man. Not like there were lollipops in high school. Only dirty bathroom tiles.

People in high school: erratic, hormonal, insecure, and most importantly, selfish. Questioning who they are and who they aren’t. Reasoning with God the Almighty, praying for bigger triceps, a C-cup or even a larger…Sick! Testing everything out, which is pretty sick. Under the wisdom of their demented role models. Velvet Underground–“Lady Godiva’s Operation”/s, only nobody’s getting an operation and hopefully the  nude students aren’t strutting their stuff in the hallways. Wondering who they are.

X chromosomes. Y chromosomes.

Zany motherfuckers.

  2. they were called TIN LIZZIES and papa wilie had a love/hate relationship with his Model T Ford…. not many owned automobiles in the depth of the depression, so papa’s relationship with lizzie was special….
    …after schneider brothers went out of business, throwing papa and so many out of work, he found a cheap basement location in lower roxbury and opened a tailor shop with dry cleaning…but few from the poor neighborhood could patronize him. ..so, if the mountain would not go to mohammed,. papa would go to the mountain…….he managed to borrow enough from aunt fannie to buy second hand lizzie and search for customers .
    lizzie turned out to be a mixed blessing.

  3. although lizziefulfilled her promise and helped earn extra income, her burden of insurance, fuel, maintenance and repairs would have sunk the enterprise, if it had not been for uncle myer, who as a teen precocious engineer magically kept lizzie going.

    proceeding through the years and a succession of worthless used cars, willie somehow managed to keep the enterprise afloat. how proud he was when myer graduated engineering schoo and received work in dayton, ohio, …as the economy improved my, er purchased a slightly used car, ………driving home to roxbury during vacation,myer and his car were the family’s pride and joy.

    by this time the depression was quickly disapperaing and papa’s circumstances improved sufficiently for him to seek reliable transportation…….. just as world war ii broke out and automobile production was stopped and replaced by the U.S (ARESENAL OF DEMOCRACY) .papa was frustrated by the absence of new cars and the rapid depletion of reliable used cars.. uncle myer returned home to enlist in the air force, and gave his car to papa willie. can you picture papa’s emotions, his firstborn son going off to war and leaving his most valuable possession to papa.

    papa never recovered from his attachment to myer’s car, lavishing full attention to it’s care and upkeep… after the war,myer returned safely and wouldn’t accept the return of his car.papa maintained his relationship with it to an extraordinary extent
