So totally guilty on all counts. But 10 hrs? That's all? Some books, I'd
keep reading and reading 'til I finished the sucker. Plus, I used to skip
school to study for the AP exams, etc. Why? Because what a bore class was.
All that mattered was good SATs and APs and finals. When warm weather came,
I was at the pool, peeking at the lifeguard, a geeky hottie bio major, from
behind my books.
I'd skip school to do other 'fun' things, but more often than not, I
skipped school and spent the day at the library learning the things I
wanted to learn, not the crap I had to endure in HS.
Trouble? Unlike my younger sister, I knew how to cover my tracks when I
threw the beer blasts or skipped out to party. I mean, duh. If you start
out forging the notes at the b/g of HS, then no one ever knows mom's
signature. And hiding the grass in the sock drawer: Puhleaaaaaaaaase. Hide
it, a la Purloined Letter, right in front of mom and dad's face. Geez!
