“That would probably be English and history. But I wasn’t good with math or science. I was functional; that’s about it.”

“Art and social studies, I guess. I wasn’t as good at math, but I’m much better at it now.”

I never was "strong" in anything because I didn't do all my homework. Best subject, and the most fun, was chorus and it's something that's been useful the rest of my life! English was easy for me--and I liked it-- but I settled for B's when, with a little work, I couldn't have gotten A's.

I mean I COULD have gotten A's--I think!

Yeh!!! GO OILERS for sure. I don't know just why, but I have always had a fascination with things past. I would give anything to be able to actually look at the lives of people way back when. Even to the cave. Reading history, sometimes I would just like to shake those people and say, "why the hell don't you do sucn and such, it is so obviously the right way to do it." Example: in the early cities, people would just dump there garbage, chamber pots, dead animals etc. into the street. And then they would walk the streets with hankies soaked in perfume over their nose to cover the smell. I mean, how blasted stupid can you be. The term for toilet in Europe is commonly the loo. Do you know how that came about? At one time French was a fairly common language in much of Europe and the french for water is l'leau. When emptying the chamber pot out of the upstairs window in the morning the maid would first yell out to those below, "Gardez le leau." Watch out for the water You can get the rest of the progression to the use of the loo. See what I mean by the fascination of history. It is really a study of the mind of man down thru the centuries, I think.
