Stupid Sh*t we did in high school that we thought was hilarious

I have recently gotten in touch with an old friend from high school (and I don't me "old as in OLD" - in fact I am probably older than him), and it got me thinking about some of the funny stuff we did (and mostly it was him...I was just along for the ride).

First of all, keep in mind, my little group of friends was all in the AP/honors classes, so, frankly, we were bored. I remember one night when we were at my house "studying". There were 3 or 4 of us - honestly, I don't remember who all was there, but I am sure my recently reunited friend was there. Let's call him "Bill", after all - that's his name!

We were in pre-calculus (I just had to spell check "calculus"), and we got stuck on some problem. So, we decided to look up our math teacher, Mrs. Pelitier, in the phone book. Yes, kids, that was in the days before cell phones and the internet. Anyhow, we found her, and called the number (and by "we", I mean "Bill"). Her husband answered. Now, honestly, by this point I was laughing so hard that I don't remember what exactly was said - I'm a giggler like that. I suppose "Bill" asked him to speak with his wife, and the husband - in absolute STUPIDITY - told us that she was at the grocery store. Not only that - he told us which store.

Now, you guess what happened next.

That's right - ROAD TRIP!!!! I can't remember which store she was at - probably Food Lion or Tom Thumb. Anyhow, we all piled into a car (probably mine - a rockin' 1985 Toyota Carolla 5 Speed). And then we went to the grocery store.

And we thought it was HILARIOUS!!!!!!

I don't know why we thought it was hilarious. She was there with her kids.

And that was HILARIOUS!!!!

And we asked her a math question.

And that was HILARIOUS!!!!

Then, I think we went to her house and put something on her front porch. I don't remember what,

but I know we thought it was HILARIOUS!!!!

She must have thought we were the biggest pains in the ass, and she probably unlisted her telephone number that night. But, we got our math question answered.

This is just one of my many "Bill" stories. He told me that he read through my blog. Given that this blog is completely fractured and random, and I don't post very often, it is bizarre to think that someone read through it, but he did, and so now he gets a story told about him.

Just think, "Bill", I could have told the story about the time you wore all black to school for several days because of an "issue" with your girlfriend.

That was also hilarious. Sorta.

Or the days you spent selling us candy and then got in trouble for beating the vending machine prices, and costing the school revenue on the vending machines.

Then there were the CO-2 bombs. You know, I prosecuted some high school kids for the same shenanigans. And I thought of you the whole time!!

good times.
