Middle school 1983 and 1984 was the best time in my life
with all the stuff that happened. It's all called life experiences!
A biography of my school years. Keep in mind, this was 30+ years ago.
It's much different times now!
Today I see all of my past as growth. Just my legacy I had earned but
not bragging about it!
(This is a disclaimer. This story has TMI. Just be aware!)
***Like the video "Hot for the Teacher" That kid was me sort of.
In middle school I got on the bus and my socks where too loose so
my shoe came off and the bus driver said "Sit down waldo!" Really
he did! This was when that video first came out. The bus driver saw
the video and thought that was funny as hell saying that to me!
At the time I did look like Waldo!
Also on the bus radio, whenever they played Billy Squier
"The stroke" the part where he says "Stroke, Stroke etc." All of us on the bus
would shake our legs and arms to the song like we where having a stroke!
And yes I was "Hot for the Teacher" in school. I had a Teacher that everytime
she erased something from the chalkboard I had to look.
As her butt went right her top went left. So it was like a Jello kind of thing.
I never looked at Jello the same way again! I guess I got love sick!
***There was a custodian with a plunger in a bad place doing
something bad in the "TV room."
I saw the teachers reaction to seeing him when she opened the door
with her students behind her. Her and her students where going to the room.
I had a good view down the hallway because I was in the front seat
in the class room I was in. I didn't see the custodian thank god,
but when a kid behind her went to open the door the teacher slammed
the door on his arm and broke it, he was running in the hallway screaming
and her students kept their distance from the teacher but didn't runaway.
All they knew is the teacher broke the kids arm.
There was a video of the custodian doing his thing that still makes it's
way in small parts to the senior video they make every year.
It pops up from time to time! Keeping the legacy of our school alive!
***Me and my friends where eating lunch in the auditorium
when we see a teacher and a custodian going in a empty closet.
(We where laying down looking under the door.)
It brought up a point / a life's question as I was thinking
"Why is she doing that if it hurts that bad, I wouldn't do that it looks painful."
When my friend kicked the door and it popped inward then popped open
hitting me in the head knocking me out.
Coming back I freaked out because I could only see out of my left eye.
(The door was blocking my right eye!)
"Im blind, Im blind!" "Shut the door dumb-ass!" "I can see, I can see!"
We ran all the way to the Q.T. off campus I was laughing and running
so fast and hard my lungs where hurting and I was foaming at the mouth.
At the Q.T. some lady passing by stopped her car and asked
if I was having a seizure! "He's ok I don't know whats wrong with him."
said my friend. And my friends started to run back to school before
the bell rang, but I was shot and walked back. Bell or not I can't run!
Later we peeked around the corner of the hallway at the teacher and
noticed she was paranoid as hell, looking around at all the kids etc.
So we felt bad for her so we wrote her a note.
Keep in mind we where 14 at the time we knew this was a big thing and
feared we would be expelled for seeing all of that. The note said something like
"Sorry for stopping your 'BLANK' sex, we won't say anything please
don't expel us from school!"
We drawled straws to see who would slip the note under the door.
It was me! I went by her door and kept trying to slip the note under the door,
but it kept slipping up and around and around it went.
I got it in the door finally and took off. I think you could hear her scream all
through the school. Sad we where mindless 14 year olds that had no clue!
***Un related. In 83 I was the teachers aid in class, she kept giving me notes
sealed in a envelope to give to the custodian. One day I looked at one and held
it up to the light. I saw red lipstick on the note, so I carefully opened it from the side
pulled out the note and read it. "Thanks for our special time together,
with your special thing, in the special place, with the special sauce!"
Keep in mind im 13 at the time. "Special sauce?" "He works at Mcdonald's?!"
I really thought that at the time!
It wasn't until college in psychology class remembering about all that back then
and realizing what the special sauce was. I laughed my ass off so hard in class!
My annoyed instructor asked me if I had anything to share with the class.
So I told them, TMI! "Sorry I asked" said the instructor!
***When I first started middle school the school was using mobile homes
as class rooms as they where doing construction during school.
I got lost looking for my class and went into this mobile home.
This Teacher was sitting behind her desk and seemed red in the face acting
really strange. She kept telling me over and over
"What are you doing, this is not your class, get out of here, go!"
I was just standing there wondering why she was acting so strange and
red in the face. So I went away. A few months later I got in trouble and
I was sitting outside of the principal's office with some other kids I knew.
When a custodian rushed in and went in the office.
The principal told the kid in the office to step out and closed the door
so all of us put our ears on the wall. The custodian said he was looking
through the Teachers desk and found a dildo in her drawer.
The principal then said "what where you doing looking in her drawers."
Then they both where laughing then the principal said
"Oh hell, never mind, take me there." Like this was not surprising.
The principal told all of us to go back to class he will get to us later, so
all of us followed them from a distance. They went straight to that mobile home
that I went in when I got lost. "Crap!" I think I said! Now I knew what was going on
with the strange acting Teacher, she was like talking to me with that thing
stuck in her. It's hard to explain unless you seen something like this face to face.
I guess the closest view point is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ujIZdgrhuWA
***There was a special needs kid that drowned in the schools
swimming pool. Our coach was talking to us about it in our gym class,
because the kid did not like the coach, being he would not let him
swim in the pool. When he was talking a big gym light started to move
by itself back and forth then popped and fell in the pool.
The ghost of the kid?
The coach came back to class the next day with a helmet on!
***In the winter me and my friend got our water guns and filled them
with water and yellow dye or something yellow and we went in a yard of a
old man that we didn't like and shot the snow in his yard to make it look like a
bunch of dogs pissed in his yard. The funny thing was I spelled
"FUK U" in the snow because I was out of water and couldn't do it right.
Riding our bikes the next day to see our work, we heard the old guy
talking about it to his neighbor. He said "The scary thing is that it said FUK U
how does a dog know how to spell?"
***Funny but really in the 80's in middle school,
I remember my teacher asking me a bunch of questions.
Like What do I think about this and what do you think about that etc.
She was asking me questions that where related to Bertrand Russell.
I was 13 at the time who the hell is Bertrand Russell?
So I didn't know anything about him but she knew of his works.
I had the same view point as Bertrand Russell when I was 13 and
I am talking about right on! We think alike! I think my teacher thought
I was a reincarnation of him. Even though he died after I was born.
Still strange! I agree I do fit in there with Bertrand or he fit in with me,
(metaphysics) but anyway...
***Not sure if it was High school or Middle school but it is funny!
I brought a 5+ lbs bag of Skittles on the bus and this other
kid grabbed my bag and twisted it, POP the Skittles all went
on the floor of the bus. I need to note a school bus in the 80's
had a gap between the dashboard and the windshield.
The lady bus driver heard the noise and started to slow down.
I was on the floor trying to round them all up
but there was too many!
started to move toward her and she said
"what is that, what is that?" all of a sudden she
slammed the breaks on and those Skittles
flew right up between the dashboard and
windshield and rained on the bus driver.
She had a hard time putting on the breaks with
the Skittles bouncing around, her foot kept
slipping of the break.
Many of them went down the steps toward
the door, like a rainbow wave of Skittles.
around it sounded like broken glass. So when the bus driver finally got to
the school she took me and the kid to the office by our ears.
When we got there many department managers where there.
The transportation manager ran all the way there from the bus barn
so he was late. He about passed out getting there.
We told them what happened and it was so funny all the staff
in the office closed their doors because they where laughing so hard.
The school superintendent put a ban on me having Skittles,
but did not expel me! It guess it was too funny!
Thanks Skittles, no really!
***I don't know if it was Middle school or High school, but
I remember a guy mocking his girlfriend that had bad PMS
with a banjo in the cafeteria. (The school had a few banjos.)
Every time she opened her mouth he plucked the banjo.
She ended up screaming and he played the banjo with her screaming.
Sort of cool but not cool, a bit of insanity in music kind of thing.
It cleared out the cafeteria, but I stayed in close to the exit.
I remember a teacher running and slapping the banjo out of his hands
(BLONG!) and if flew across the room and hit the wall.
The teacher yelled "What are you doing she's losing her Minddddd-da!"
She was out of breath as she said that. The rest of the day the kids would
say "did you hear about the girl that lost her mind in the cafeteria?"
I would say "no she lost her Minddddd-da!"
***Also I remember some kids hired a stripper to give a kid a happy B-bay
thing in the cafeteria with cake or something.
That was a bad thing the principal was pissed off!
***In middle school many poor kids found out they could put penneys
on the rail road track and after a train goes over they had what looked
like a food token the cafeteria used to give lunch tickets out for kids.
The kids would be sitting in class then hear the train running.
And for the kids it was like a "BOOYA" moment in class!
This was the 80's Reagan was making things bad in school and pay!
Kids have to eat!
***We are talking about 1984 etc. At that time all these bands where
coming out with good stuff that blew your mind. Aldo Nova, Ratt, Dokken etc...
Then came Motley Crue and the funny time I had explain to a kid
"Those are not girls dude, those are dudes, dude!" "What? I masterbai.... uh!"
"What?" and he runs away. This kind of stuff happened a lot for the time,
kind of norm.
***In Middle school we had a holy roller principal that had a pep-rally
once so he could tell us to not play records backward it's the devils music!
He was talking about a song from Chicago "you're my inspiration"
"I wanna have you near me Satan!" a teacher ran to her desk and got her
Chicago tape and showed him the lyrics "I wanna have you hear me saying."
S.A.Y.I.N.G! The coach did not like the principal and after that the coach
started pacing around cursing when he noticed all the kids sitting
in the bleachers, and let us all know how good of a job we are doing.
Rally is over.
***Me and my friend saw the Richard Pryor: Live on the Sunset Strip
movie. My friends sister saw the movie before us and she went out last
by the backdoor and she let us in as she was going out.
We hid a bit until people came in. Then we sat up as high as we could so we
didn't look like 13 year olds. Most of the movie was over our heads.
Except the parts about Mexicans. He was Mexican. "Hey that's not right!"
Also my friend had a relative that was in the band DIO.
Me and my friend where riding our bikes at ORU tulsa and DIO was
playing in Oklahoma at the time. His relative was looking for him and
his mom said we where at ORU riding bikes.
So he took his white limo to ORU and found us!
They put our bikes in the back of the limo and we got a ride with the band
back home. Yes I met Ronny James Dio he was not happy about having a
white limo because the black ones where all used up for funerals white was
all they had. "The prince of darkness does not drive up in a white limo!"
He was kind of not happy he was in a white limo and being at ORU!
"Is this ok?" Funny!
He asked me about my famous family member and he kind of insulted him / me
on the fact of the cocaine use he had at the time.
"Too bad... If one of my band mates used the drug they would be fired.",
"Where is he anyway?" (No one knew at the time!)
The DIO video "The Last In Line" it relates of us riding our bikes and the kid on the
bike was based on my friend. I think that guy with glasses in the guitar solo looks
like me! I remember hearing the song in a elevator in the 90's.
Spooky, elevator music, funny at the time!
***To offset the DIO story being it still bugs me being in
the limo with Ronny James Dio at ORU. The fact it was ORU... Anyway!
I had a dream once before Easter I was on a bridge over fire and this beast kept
coming at me ripping at me it hurt, over and over he came at me and me fighting
it but it hurt enough that I said JESUS, and the next thing I knew I woke up with
a bird chirping outside my window and the sun was coming in shining on me.
Happy Easter! I guess that shows my spiritual side!
***Me and my friend met a ghost council Indian Chief
when I was a kid. We where in the boy scouts in 1983, we all where hiking,
on this hill in Tulsa when me and my friend sat on a rock looking down at the
Arkansas river. The rock was was shaped like Oklahoma.
Me and my friend was talking about Cowboys and Indians when all of a sudden
This guy said something behind us. We did not hear anyone coming behind us.
There are leaves around and a bunch of skinny trunk trees.
So there was no place to hide and leaves to make noise.
He told us to respect and for each feather he had on his headdress
he killed a Buffalo! Smiled at me. I guess he looked into our future and
decided to let us go. Looking back at it. I don't know!
Me and my friend looked at each other and
when we looked back at the Chief, he was gone!
He could not of ran that fast without making any noise, with no trees to hide!
***In the summer time my friends had a tire and we took it to this big hill
I wanted to go down in it, but had no clue! We put a pillow on my back and
one for my knees in the tire. I was ready to go I said and they pushed me down
the hill I remember going around three times and on the third time I remember
my arms where flapping like a bird as I spun around, then I blacked out!
When I came back I was on the ground with my head on the tire looking
at the sky wondering why the clouds where spinning clockwise!
By then my friends got to me and told me my arms where flapping
like a bird all the way down and they thought I hit 60 mph.
I went far and almost went into the creek! Never did that again!
And down the road when I saw that in a Beavis and Butthead show
it was amazing to see it. It was like a flashback! Wow dude I did that!
***In the 80's sometime me and my friends where riding our bikes at night
in this new neighborhood they where making. Some real high dollar places
three stories high etc cool for kids to explore! We where exploring this house
they where working on it had no toilet or sink or anything hooked up yet.
We where checking out the house and my friends went up stairs
and I was about ready to go up there also when
I had a bad case of the diarrhea!
I ran to the bathroom and the only thing available to me was the floor vent
in the bathroom because the toilet drain had a rubber plug
in it and I had no time! The vent was right there close so...
Afterward I didn't tell my friends about it and we all took off.
I didn't want them to poke fun at me. So I didn't say anything.
I found out months later when they put the house together and the
owner got moved in he finally turned on the AC I guess the moisture
in the vent from the AC it brought the smell back to life after months!
It really was funny "Shit!" Because we still took our bikes over there
off and on seeing what they are doing in the neighborhood,
with me knowing I crapped in that house but thinking it would like dry up
and no one would know! It ended up like a time bomb!
(Sorry whoever it was that had the house!)
***Also in the days when me and my friends rode bikes we heard from a friend
that there was a whorehouse in a rich neighborhood.
So we rode our bikes to it. I don't remember if my friends dared me to knock
on the door but I did. A lady answered the door she looked at me and
said I was too young or something like it. We debated for a while until
she asked me something and I replied "I don't have any money yet."
After that she slammed the door shut and me and my friends took off!
We only wanted to look around in there!
***I had friends that took anything we could bikes, big wheels, skates etc
to a place called Turkey mountain. It was the place where I saw the
ghost Indian chief. But at the time there was no road directly to it so
we had to carry the stuff on our bikes thru another town to the place.
It was a road going down the hill we went to. We rode our stuff down the hill.
I took the big wheel down the hill and every time I would
end up going down the hill backward like at 40 mph.
The plastic tire only lasted 3 times down the hill before it melted
smoking a bit. The kid on the skates I think only went down once.
The other thing I had was a old time toy that was powered with push
and pull handles. That was the funniest thing we brought. Going down the hill
it was going so fast the handles where beating me up like it was punching me!
I was laughing all the way down the hill and so where my friends watching me.
***I had two teachers that snapped in class. One had a real problem she kept
talking about Greek mythology like she believed it. She would end up in tears
with her makeup running down her face.
The other teacher from what I heard back then went home during lunch only
to find her husband with someone else. The teacher went back to school and
it was my class I had with her next.
She told us to open any chapter and read on our own leave her alone
don't bug me! We all thought this was cool, she was a tight teacher
like a nice Nazi sort of so this never happened before.
As we where doing our own thing she kept tapping
her desk with her nails, sort of like a time bomb. It got louder and faster,
then all of a sudden BOOM she grabbed a roll of 50 pencils and broke
them with her knee. She was saying about every bad word known.
"$#%, ^%$#, #*#$^, Corn Hole, $&^&*" etc...
Note the word "Corn Hole" this was 1983 I think when this happened.
13, 14 yearolds don't know what that word was back then.
Most girls at 14 had coloring books back then no Internet etc.
bugged out of her rhinestone glasses her mouth was
open so much you could see her tonsils flying around.
Her breath was hitting us in our chairs and it
was like a shock-wave of a nuke.
She threw a book at a kid it flew like
it was a bird. And the kid went running out the
door with the desk he just fit out the door.
It looked like Fred Flintstone driving his car
out of the room. All the kids then looked at
each-other like asking should we run also?
But by then the teacher got it together and ran out of the class.
(She later apologized to us.) But the after effects of not knowing what the
word "Corn Hole" was is more damaging because of not being able to
A friend in school said he was at the mall with his friends and he asked a
adult if he could ask him a question. "Well yes how can I help you, young man?"
"Whats a Corn Hole?" the guy looked scared and started to run away from
the kids. Being the adult was scared, now they have to know what the word
means. So they chase the adult out of the mall saying "Tell us!, Tell us!"
And my friends older brother a stoner was dating the sister
of a girl that was in the class when the teacher blew up.
He said he was eating dinner with them and they where having
beef stew with corn bread. The dad had a hot piece of meat between
his teeth sucking in air to cool it off, when the younger sister said,
"Mom, Dad I know what corn bread is but whats a corn hole, Is that
like corn bread with a hole?" The dad sucked and choked on the
burning meat. So the mom came around and did the heimlich maneuver
on the dad. The piece of meat flew across the table and landed in front
of my friends older brother and seeing the steam coming off the meat and
the dad pissed off in that second he realized what his teacher was
saying about irony, "I get it!"
There is more to a story than the story itself!
***We had a custodian that got drunk as the day goes along.
I heard that he had Vodka in a spray bottle and was taking shots as
the day goes along. (Back then they had water and Alcohol mix
for disinfection smells like vodka.) He would get drunk and drunker
until the last hour when he couldn't push the dust broom anymore
it was holding him up. Then he would drop the broom in the hallway
and lock himself in the closet.
***The bad! I had a Teacher that said "BURN IN HELL!" Well that was good
she said that being that a girl got raped in school and you could hear her yelling
in the class rooms when the AC would stop running.
The principal, office staff etc was running room to room looking for them.
All the time she was yelling the kids thought she was getting stabbed.
The bad thing was she was telling him please stop and he was going on.
He knew he was got and was going to finish.
By the time the principal, staff found them in the basement we heard them,
say "get that out of her." And at that time someone in the office played the
morning announcements cassette tape full blast so we couldn't hear things.
But we knew it was over! Then a short time later the police chief and deputy
came in to the school parking lot with the supercharger screaming.
The doors flew open and out they went.
They went running down my hallway where my class was.
And it was a thank god moment for everyone.
Then after that some office staff walked the girl down the hallway
with both arms. She was bad looking!
My Teacher saw the girl and knew it was not another kid that did that to her.
And when the police chief and deputy walked the custodian down the hall
in hand cuffs my Teacher came unglued! "How could you do that to a little girl,
she's just a child!" She yelled "BURN IN HELL! Slammed the door and open the
door and yelled "BURN IN HELL!" Then slammed the door again then she kicked
the door and broke her heel and ended up hitting the floor with her fist.
All the time we where not crying or anything. The Teacher stood up for us kids!
The Teacher got herself together then opened the door.
But the other class room in-front of us had a new Teacher.
When our Teacher yelled "BURN IN HELL!" the new Teacher
was on her knees in the door way crying "WHY, WHY, WHY!"
with all of her kids behind her in tears, girls with black makeup
going down their face. A real awkward moment, we are not crying
and they are! So my teacher pointed to her kids, "The kids!"
and the new Teacher saw she had her hands full.
Sort of awkwardly funny in a way.
The Teacher got us back into working in the book when we noticed
the police chief and deputy was taking the custodian to the police car
they bent him over and the chief pulled out his night stick and popped
him in the tail bone and pushed him in the back seat of the car.
Then they got in the car and lit it up out of the parking lot suppercharger
screaming a patch of rubber going out of the school.
Everyone on the parking lot side of the school that seen that cheered.
We all knew the chief and deputy was like saying
"Don't you worry they will have to %#$% with us before they get to you!"
We got it!
I think my Teacher said "Take him to hell boys."
I remember that, but Im not sure who said it.
This was bad, but in a sub point of view the Teachers composer sets the class.
My Teacher kept us cool by being cool. The other Teacher being new,
was in tears crying "WHY, WHY, WHY?" And so was the kids in Tears.
It was bad times and the new Teacher was not a bad Teacher the point is the point.
A short time later there where all new custodians that knew our names and
our teachers. I remember this girl looking at one and he grabbed a broom
and dustpan and used it limp wrist, half assed.
The girl said "Your not a custodian!" They later apologized for not
being truthful it was not deceitful and they just wanted to help.
They where really Psychologists dressed like custodians.
The custodians still had their jobs.
***Me and my friends where eating lunch on the roof top somewhere
and I was looking down the side of the building at the windows!
I was watching this teacher and a girl talking.
They looked around then she jumped on his desk and he kissed
her grabbing her all over. I called my friends over and they looked.
Being that was funny for us at the time, we all started to yell over and over,
"BLANK, her in the BLANK." (You know that the blanks are!)
full with the body movements to follow. They heard us they looked right
they looked down they looked left, then they looked up!
The teacher turned white as a ghost and the girl turned red as
a tomato. And we knew they did! So we realized we better run!
But we didn't realize they heard us all over the school yelling.
And for the rest of the day all the kids said
"Did you hear those people saying BLANK her in the BLANK!"
We didn't want to get expelled so we where like, no when was that?
We didn't see that Teacher again! This was the last of the funnies that
happened in middle school.
***In summer school sometime don't remember how it happened but a kid
I was hanging around with got a teacher in a ditch and bent her over and
was going to pull down her pants. I could not believe what was going on
and I told him to stop everyone will see you come out of here after.
He stopped and let her go she ran! All people are not normal never think that
they are. I could not believe a kid would act that way!
***In middle school coach was at Vietnam and would have flashbacks
from time to time. We would be playing dodge-ball when all of a sudden
a can of Coke would fly in the air at us and coach would kick the table over
and say something about charlie. Who is this charlie and why is he mad at him?
***A coach caught a man raping a middle school girl.
But it was not a man it was a high school kid having sex with his
young girlfriend. Coach ran across them in a room and he thought it
was one of the guys that had a house down the street that hangout
to check out the 14 year olds outside during lunch.
He ended up beating the shit out of the kid and was carrying him
by his underwear down the hallway when the underwear broke
and the kid was naked in the hall. He took off but coach cought him
and kicked him punched him etc.
Then coach carried him upside down with his feet in the air.
When the kid punched him in the back. Coach landed on top of him
and picked him up again but by then the kid gave up and coach carred him
to the front of the school and sat on him till the cops came.
He later went around and apologized to everyone and let us know he thought the
girl was getting raped by the guy down the road.
Understandable with my schools history! Coach was standing up for us!
***Un related! We got a new coach, his name was Dick.
When I was in my English class I found some letters for the wall in my
teachers room. I found the letter R! So being the times I thought it would be
funny to replace the C on his "Coach Dick" name plate by his office
with the R! "Roach Dick!" The Coach was a meanie anyway.
But I didn't consider he ripped the name plate off the wall and with the
principal went class room to class room to find out who did it.
My teacher shook her head after they left my class I was in at the time.
A big hoopla over a nameplate?
***In middle school time my friend I hung outwith told me
his mom had a boyfriend. How can she have a boyfriend
with a husband so I didn't believe him. Until...
Me and my friend was playing a battleship game as
his mom was running around getting ready for something.
All of a sudden there was a honk, honk outside and
my friends mom that looked like Peggy from married with
children with her stilettos on said something to her husband
and he said be careful then the she tap, tapped to the door where
she opened the door and just stood there for a second then
she slammed the door shut and ran, tap, tap, tap to the
refrigerator got a bottle of champagne and three glasses
then ran to the door tapping away with her stilettos
her saying "A threesome, a threesome, a threesome"
as she went out the door. Me and my friend looked out the window
wanting to know what the hell a threesome was.
We saw his mom run to a red convertible with two guys in it.
They acted like they where going to take off without her, then they stopped.
She climbed over the trunk of the car on all fours and got in the back seat
and as they took off she popped the champagne open!
My friends dad was looking out the door seeing this also.
He said something like "Nothing stands between a woman and a threesome!"
Another time after that my friend and I was playing a game and his mom
was kind of a gripe that day, and he was bothered by her so he said outloud
"Mom let it go, go see your boyfriend!" His mom said "WHAT!" and at that
time I got sent back home!
***In the 80's I remember getting a bucket of bleach and putting
it out by the bathroom window. Then I got balloons and filled them
with ammonia and in the bathroom with my boombox ready
I would throw the balloon at the bleach shut the window fast and
click play on the boombox playing the song Jimi Hendrix Blue Haze.
Give the cloud flying past the window was purple it was close enough!
***I remember in preschool about a kid that got kicked by a donkey.
donkeys tail and he kicked him in the neck.
It was bad. I remember a teacher grabbing
me by the arm and throwing me like a
rag doll so I didn't see it. My legs where in the
air and my head was scraping the ground but
I could see scene as I was flying upside down.
Keep in mind we are we little kids we don't know what death is we all thought
it was a magic trick he was doing. The teachers quickly rushed us back
to the building and took us to the back of the school. I remember hearing a firetruck
and all of us wanted to see the truck being little kids but the teachers said no!
And we where upset! That is what bugged us the most we are too young to have a clue!
This is no way traumatizing us kids at the time we had no clue and now
it's something that happened in the 70's letting you know not to let kids do those things.
***In Ohio in the 70's the fire department had a city type festival and
they had a Kangaroo with a vest on with a chain watch on in boxed fence.
You had to chase the kangaroo and grab the watch from his vest to win.
They let us kids do it! You had to stop if he made it to a corner,
that was that game, still fun being I was 8, 9, 10?
***Not middle school but when I was in a elementary school this kid
ask me if it was ok if the principal plays a game with him in the bathroom
called "pop goes the weasel." I told the kid, it doesn't sound right.
What is he doing the bathroom with you anyway.
You might want to tell your dad about this!
And over the weekend, Monday we had a new principal!
***Also in elementary I realized I could see around corners.
Only outside in the summer if I looked close to the side of the edge
of the school I could see around the corner. Is was like a mirage!
***In elementary there was a bomb treat. They made the custodians look around
for something out of sorts. And at the time a bad storm was coming in.
A custodian was in the boiler room looking and found a brown bag in the middle
of the room. He went to touch it so see if he can look in it, when a loud
boom of thunder hit. It turns out it was just a custodians lunch sitting there.
Im sure he crapped his paints! I would of!
***Also in elementary I had two kids try to beat me up in the playground.
They cornered me so I spun around and jumped in the air and threw my
fist out. I hit all of them as I spun around. "Wap, wap, wap, wap..."
I knocked them all down then I ran for it!
***I got expelled from elementary for having playboys in my bag.
Me and my friends found them in the creek we play at.
A friends older brother had them and was hiding them from his
mom / dad in the creek we found them and grabbed them up!
I was trying to sale them up at school for like a $1+ a mag.
I don't know why but I put one in the teachers mailbox at the school?
I don't know why even today??? But a kid ratted me out.
Another Teacher searched my bag and I got busted I got expelled
on Friday the 13th!
***Also when I was in my elementary time 1979 I think,
I remember a teacher taking me to a bar to have a coke to also meet
her boyfriend or husband. It was something about her pay check
to pay the rent, she brought me along. Nothing bad... but I guess that
was my first date with a teacher when I was 10!
That was really cool it was life in the 70's
when life was better. It was a feeling of there is more to life than a
box you call school, for the time!
Also at the same school it was run by Nuns but had teachers teaching.
The Nuns would walk the halls. I was in a math class and my friend next to
me was having a hard time and said damn!
The head Nun in the hall heard him and made him hold out his hand.
And hit him with a Nun ruler. Being it was a Nun I laughed at him.
Then the Nun hit me and my friend laughed at me.
Then we both laughed and she let loose on us!
My teacher came to the rescue and we ended up having to apologize.
Also on the playground on the swing I got bored with with it
and thought it would be fun to go all the way around it.
So with help from a friend I think, he pushed me as I went up and over
only to drop down and with a whip noise as I slammed down.
So over and over I did that and I guess I was making a lot of noise
when a Nun came running at me, and told me to stop.
It was fun while it lasted I did it one other time in school but
by then I was too heavy and the chain broke and I hit the sand below.
I gave up on it after that!
***Yes I am for real! This stuff really happened to me
or I heard about it from the masses in school at the time.
Middle school is a social experiment anyway.
I did not really learn much in the books.
For the time there was much going on to the point,
that when many of us got into High school we where mostly depressed.
I remember a group of us having to sit in front of the school psychologist.
He wanted to know why we where depressed. NOTHING IS HAPPENING!
So we let him know and he didn't know how much we knew.
"I am well aware of that lets not talk about that... etc."
All of this is not putting down my school! It validates how cool it is!
When you put it all together it gives you a lifetime of stuff to talk about!
All of these stories are in the past not now!
It's about a legacy, all is forgiven!
Keep the fire going this was the best time of my life.
This is like a BIO of my years at school.
And I hope it will be the best time of others there.
The custodians today that works at my old school should be proud
to work at a kick ass school! What school has that legacy!
High School? Being bored at High school There was a trick I learned
on a school bus. When the bus makes a right turn or left turn with
all the windows down you can throw a paper ball outside toward
the front of the bus and it gets sucked in a window hitting some kid
in the head. The fun is seeing the kid wondering who hit him! LOL!
Also in High School many kids got parts as extras in the movie
"Weird Al" Yankovic UHF they where making.
On the part when the cars where all lined up, this girl I liked back then
got a part and she was there in her red Toyota Celica, funny!
In High School in the art class there was a kid in class that took a dot of
acid. He was freaked out not knowing what hour it was because
he said the clock was running backward so he didn't know the time.
And later in class he said every time he walked by the teachers desk
there was a ruffle in the trash can so he didn't look until he finally had
to look. He screamed and fainted. He told me he saw two green hands
pull itself out of the can. It was a gremlin like thing he said. A machine elf!
High school for me was the dark ages nothing as much happened to me,
but there are many stories of what happened to others.
Some I can say and some I can't say here they are kind of bad!
It's like it wouldn't matter anyway the point is where the point is and everything else
is trivial or just to put it like "what happens in the hotel stays in the hotel."
After High School things got interesting! 89 was a strange year.
And 90s was like 84 again! http://walmartramen.blogspot.com/2014/02/banquet-servers.html
***Without giving anyone any TMI, or info about who it was,
have to say in the late 80's my high school girlfriend was a ex teen prostitute
in Vegas when she was 13. I believe that she ran away and someone pimped
her in Vagas only for her to be beaten up giving her a broken jaw,
taken home and with a ding dong zoom here is your daughter kind of thing
she was dropped off at the front door. Whoever did it are bastards even today!
I hooked up with her when she was 15 starting high school I was 18 myself and
way over my head with everything! It was a emotional support type of relationship.
Like a shotgun wedding. Her dad told me don't break up with her she can't take rejection.
I was her first boyfriend after all that mess!
I still love her today, I love everyone anyway, timelessly!
The point? In my life it points to me as what to take seriously and not in life etc.
Her pain was kind of my pain, it was bad for her, so I felt for her, wanted a happy
life for her and today I wish she would let it out, like talk to kids at schools
about it to point why to not runaway etc.
***Protected destiny? In my high school days. At a Votech school I was
going to during High School. There where some guys I hung out with "stoners",
I did not smoke with them.
During lunch they took off in my friends car to his parents house to
get some of his pot, I was in the back of the car.
They went there smoked at the house then drove back to school.
We where driving along when all of a sudden they slammed on the breaks.
I hit the back of the front seat. (a)-Only the second time in my life that
happened. We all got out of the car to look at a cow on the side of the road.
It looked at us like it had something to say, but it just mooed!
They where on the ground laughing. Funny but really, it's just a cow!
We got back to Votech, then we went back to our class, but it was late and they
ran to class but it was the wrong class they ran into! They got in there sat down.
I was in the hallway looking at them saying wrong class! Dudes!
The teacher knew and the kids in class knew they where stoned, all but them,
they thought no one knew! It was clear the pot made them stupid.
(a)-I hit the back of the front seat of a car once and rotated as I was pined
to the seat then my legs went over the seat and I softly floated into the front seat
as the car stopped, just like I meant to do that. With me in the back seat a friend
was going fast then slammed on the breaks for some reason and
I ended up in the front seat.
It was one of those protected destiny things I get from time to time.
***Like the time I got hit by a car on a moped!
I went to the Q.T. down the road and driving back I was stopped in the road
going to make a left turn. Well a car doing 45 mph going down a hill behind me
hit me. I was on a moped and they said he didn't see me because of something
on his dashboard blocking the view so boom! The bike went forward and I went
with the car so I grabbed the hood and went for the ride until he stopped hard and
I had to let go of the hood because I was worried of losing a finger I hit the ground
and slid with the car with me holding on to the air-dam for the ride to keep from
being ran over. I was ok all that happened was it bruised my kidney so I turned yellow
and it pulled all the ligaments in one leg because my leg got pulled up too fast as I
went over the hood of the car. It took me 5 months to walk on it again.
It gave me some respect at High School!
But over all I got hit by a car doing 45 mph on a moped and did not die! Cool!
***My first car in 1989 was a cursed car that I think tried to kill me four times!
I was going to a girlfriends place in December 1989, when I was driving up this hill
and from my right going left a green fireball went across the sky.
The time it took me to say to myself, what the hell is that Kryptonite,
because I was really expecting to see superman there also.
The windshield started to crackle and pop and it started to get really hot
in the car. Then a glowing round mass the size of a basketball started to appear
on the windshield . Then it got really hot in the car and the mass turned white.
I was thinking what ever was doing that could get in the car to me,
so I reached over and turned the AC on the defrost and started to blow
on the windshield to keep it from melting.
What saved me was a 70's Chevy has lead in the glass and I ended up not having the
AC on the heat was on so it was better at cooling through the radiator.
As the fireball got farther away things cooled off. It was gone and it was still hot so
I put my hand outside and the air was hot, like summer 100 deg and as I drove along
I hit the cool 25 deg December air. So I was thinking the fireball aimed at my car!
People seen the green fireball, other than me in 1989!
***And I also for some reason I sat by the curb and I put my foot under the school
bus tire and the bus ran over my foot. It didn't hurt, it just ran over my foot like a
big marshmallow went over my foot! It was kind of cool!
***I was riding my bike once and saw one of my friends so I wanted to
show off, so I flew fast down the road at them then I slid the bike sideways to
stop. But the bike catapulted me in the air at them as they where standing there.
I was coming at them but they did not move they just looked at me and I landed
right with in a inch, face to face with my friend and said "HI!" Like I meant
to do that. He hit me in the nuts!
***Relating to the times of school and to put a light on things I guess.
I have to mention that when I was a kid my "Object Permanence" happened
far sooner than expected. I am advanced in that cognitive stage when I was a kid.
I remember playing ball and slightly seeing the ball go under a couch.
I knew it was out of sight so it was gone to me but also knew it went under there.
My first paradox in life!
So I put my hand under the couch not sure if my hand would disappear and I felt
something and I pulled it out and when I looked at it. It was my ball and at that moment
it set off a something like a seizure. I remember shaking bad, like my neurons had
a massive connection wire up at that moment, like a PC reboot.
Boom, boom norm, just like that.
And because of all that is in my life, I have earned it to be like I am.
Keep that in mind, I got hit by a car doing 45 mph with me on a moped
and made it! So I may not take things people think as serious, seriously!
It's not serious to me! Life is too short really to be serious!
