Did You Enjoy High School?

“If you enjoyed high school, you were probably a psychopath or a cheerleader. Or possibly both.” Jenny Lawson, an American author, and blogger.

 I enjoyed most of high school. I sort of peaked there.

I valued high school debate. It was challenging and fascinating. 

One had to learn the year’s topic thoroughly to challenge others. The creative nature of penetrating cross-examination, given and received, was intriguing. Finally, the chance to expand my horizons citywide, statewide, and nationwide was enriching for a teenager trying to escape a tough father.

The infancy of my date-life was embarrassing, pathetic, and forgettable. I guess I should have dated a psychopathic cheerleader.
