When I saw this announcement pop up on Facebook, I nearly died. I mean really, finding out two of your high school teachers, over 20 years later, are getting married?!
So many questions here, so many questions. My eyes have now been opened to lots of possibilities. Were there all sorts of scandalous activities and affairs taking place while I was in school between teachers? Was my Home Economics teacher (I remember really liking her by the way) secretly baking cookies for Mr. Wigand and sharing them in the teacher’s lounge when no one was looking?
Major love affairs? Marriages broken apart? Or is this just a case of reconnecting and decided hey, we are divorced, retired and always liked each other so let’s get married.
So yes, I went to Kennedy High School. Even if you aren’t from New York, Kennedy High School (as in Bellmore JFK, not Plainview JFK) made it’s place on the national map because of Amy Fisher. You know the whole Amy Fisher and Joey Buttafucco story right? Talk about scandalous activities. That was quite the dramatic storyline when I was in high school. It followed us everywhere and well, I followed it everywhere.
I guess I’ve always had a thing for scandals.
In high school, we made it a point to ring Amy Fisher’s doorbell on Halloween even though she was in jail and her mom never answered the door. And once we had our driver’s licenses, one of our first stops was a few towns over to do way too many drive by’s of Joey Buttafucco’s house. We needed to see what was going on, okay? And it wasn’t me who pulled through Joey’s circular driveway. I was the one in the back seat dying of laughter combined with fear that we would end up in jail.
Don’t forget that I used to follow Jerry Seinfeld too when I got my license since his sister was my neighbor!
We didn’t have internet or smart phones back then so I guess this was our entertainment. Although really, 99.9% of the fun is always in the process of getting to our scandalous destination and then talking about how ridiculous we are in the process.
I am no different today, believe me. Nowadays I am just a little bit older, a little bit blonder and have GPS built into my car. My younger self never would have believed something like GPS would ever even exist!
You may have seen this on my Instagram story the other day. No big deal, we (as in my pal, Meaghan and me) just needed to make a quick stop at the Oheka Castle. And yes, it was a good time. Maybe a bad idea, but a really good time. 🙂
On This Day:
9/7/15: Labor Day Weekend Things – I need to go back to Max Brenner for the chocolate chip cookies!
When did you graduate high school? Will you/did you attend your reunion?
Are you a Seinfeld fan?
Do you agree that most of the fun resides in the process of getting to where you are going rather than the actual destination?
