Collected memories - Sarah
OK, I DO remember that we(or some people we knew?) used to launch our butter pats at the cafeteria ceiling by placing them on our paper napkins and snapping the napkins to launch the butter. I recall the resultant grease spots on the ceiling, but of course, have no recollection of who among us actually did that.
I remember playing hookey with Barb Wilson one day, feighning illness and leaving school mid-morning, so that we could go downtown to a matinee of "On the Beach", and then being approached by Don Solem at the basketball game that night, who solicitously asked me if I was feeling better.... Of COURSE I was! (oops.....grin...gulp)
I remember our Latin Club, "Magnae Larvae Caesaris" (that being the only Latin I now remember, other than "Omnia Gallia divisa est in partes tres....") and that Carolyn Robbins, may she rest in peace, saved my bacon more than once in third year Latin, as did Dawn Friedell.
I remember acting in "Life with Father" with Ann Partner and Georgina Tulley, and receiving a "break a leg" telegram (how thrilling) from Jeff George who was by then in theatre at DU, the afternoon of opening night. At the end of the run, he gave me a St. Genesius medal (patron saint of actors and musicians, which I still have).
I remember walking home (to 36th and Nelson) from the old junior high school, and from the "new" secondary school, rather than taking the bus, because it was more fun to hang out with friends and neighbours along the way, and I didn't get home so quickly. Janice Stahn was my best buddy in those days and we walked each other home and back and forth, a lot. In those days, sometimes a guy would even offer to carry your books (and we didn't have backpacks).
