Random Tuesday Pop Quiz . . .
Got a good Tuesday morning going on, and so happy about that! Yesterday was a good day, primarily because I got several important things done! I finished up an article I had due to the News (one that I had procrastinated on for three or four days), got a go-ahead from a query I sent out, and actually stayed at the house without going shopping or running around (the goal here—to spend less money and to not have to buy so much gas!).
The other great news from yesterday was that Delaney finally got to complete her tryout for the travel softball team she’s been trying to make (meaning—the rain finally stopped falling and let us have a sunny tryout!). She did GREAT in the tryouts (you should have seen her snag some of those hard-to-reach fly balls and line drives!) and they told Gary last night that she made it! This is for a really strong program called the Birmingham Thunderbolts (www.birminghamthunderbolts.com) and I think she will really do well with this team. The only problem is that she doesn’t know any of the other girls on the team. I tried to tell her, though, that it won’t be long until she’s friends with all of them. They’ll get to be good friends quick!
I was so proud watching her in tryouts. She continues to amaze me with the way she plays—she dives for balls, runs so fast, and just gives it everything she’s got! I was never an athlete, but I LOVE sports—so I tell her all the time that I live vicariously through her! So . . . yay, D!!!!
Now for the business at hand . . . Random Tuesday!
For my post this morning, I thought I’d get us all thinking about our schooldays—with school back in session here in Bama, it’s got me thinking about my school memories. So, with that in mind . . .
(1) How many schools did you attend growing up? Five—from Asbell Elementary in Fayetteville, Arkansas, through Tuscaloosa County High.
(2) Who was your first school crush? Oh boy, that would have to be Bobby Foster in the First Grade. Loved that boy! Tall and cute (and just happened to be the son of the Arkansas Razorbacks’ assistant basketball coach.) Where are you now, Bobby?!
(3) Who was your most unique (i.e., eccentric, weird) teacher? What’s bad is I can’t even remember her name, but she taught 8th grade math at Ramay Junior High in Fayetteville. I just remember that she wore the same two outfits over and over! And then there was Mr. Foster, my Geography teacher in 11th grade. My friend, Angela, and I still laugh about him. He pronounced everything wrong and always thought we were sisters. And, oh gosh, Mrs. Coley in 11th grade Chemistry; she’d get carried away writing on the chalkboard, run out of room, and just keep on writing on the walls!
(4) Who was your best teacher? Lots of great teachers through the years, but I always remember Mrs. Thompson from 4th grade. I still remember the unit we did on Hawaii; we had a luau in our room and we all thought that was the coolest!
(5) When/where did you graduate from high school? 1986, Tuscaloosa County High (yep, just celebrated 20 years!!)
(6) What was your best and worst subject in high school? Best—History Worst—Any math or science (in Physical Science in 9th grade, I literally blew up an experiment and was basically blackballed from actually participating in any mixing of chemicals!) Okay, this will be fun to find out where some of my new blog friends went to school and I always love to hear from all of my "old" friends. So give me-- How many schools you've attended-- First school crush-- Most unique/eccentric teacher-- Best teacher-- When/where went to high school-- Best/worst high school subject-- Hope all of you have a great day today!! I'm not sure where everyone was yesterday, but I had much fewer people drop by yesterday. Guess it was just one of those Monday things . . . so I hope to "see" more of you today in BlogLand. (Ronalyn, Nat, Jane--any of you wander in--check out my blog from yesterday. I think you'll really appreciate the awesome Sunday I had!!!) See ya!!
