1. My favorite subject in school is: [this appears to have been left blank at first glance, but on closer examination I think that I wrote the name of the teacher I had a crush on and then erased it]

2. I sometimes am afraid of: car accidents.

3. I never want to: see earth destroyed; man, maybe; earth, no.

4. Most of my teachers are: my friends. [I didn’t mean my peers are my teachers, rather that I was friends with my adult teachers.]

5. I get kind of depressed when: I take responsibility for other people.

6. I wonder if: someone will kill Ronald Reagan if he wins.

7. Going to college is: important to me.

Mudsliding with Sallie

Yes, I was truly blessed with a magical upbringing. This is me, at school, with my first teacher, Sallie Rhyne, mudsliding. An official, school-sanctioned activity.

I made that sweatshirt myself and yes, there is an H, it's just a bit off center & hidden by the fold. The animal below my name is a rat, maybe Banana Bingo or Bianca Bonkers. The pants, prior to mud, were, I believe, purple wide-wale corduroys
