I somehow took one of the hottest girls in my class to my Junior Prom. Not quite sure how I pulled that one off.

I wonder what he did with the goat after he tied it to the flagpole.

Getting the hell out. High School was awful.

That I did not kill myself with all of the crazy stunts that I pulled or doing scientific experiments on myself with drugs/drinks

I am least proud that my graduating class picked Van Halen's "Right Now" as their song...stinks but better, I guess, than "Time of Your Life."

Being chosen for honors English. Back in my day they didn't have AP classes, and for honors classes you had to be chosen by teachers.

Probably the time I saw Bruce Hornsby and the Range perform at the UC Davis campus just down the street. The greatest rock concert ever!

I dunked on my P.E. teacher in a game of twenty one and then we went outside and smoked a doobie behind the gym.

I liked high school. Late 60s small town, it was the end of the age of innocence.

Football. Our coach would give a silver dollar to anyone who managed to cause a personal foul to be called on a player on the other team. In one game my senior year I was in the opposing QB's face all night and in the 4th I blindside tackled him before he could get a pass off. I was walking back to our side when I got clobbered in the back. He had been so mad that he fired the football at me and got 15 plus an ejection.

Not getting caught for all of the stunts I either pulled or convinced others to pull.

Winning the daily lunch hour penny toss one day on the back stairs, just before the assistant principal showed up and confiscated the money. Now we have casinos!

Making the honor roll all four quarters of my senior year and graduating with honors in English. I hated high school (or more correctly, it hated me). But I am the walking embodiment of the saying that the "best revenge is a life well lived".
