What do I remember about high school? I haven’t thought about this at all, so I guess whatever I say is going to be the things I already remember.
And the first thing that comes to mind is lunchtime, playtime, the break in the morning and the afternoon, 15 minutes usually. In the hour with lunch, we took about 10 to scarf down some lunch, and then we would be outside.
I grew up in England, so it’s kind of surprising me that we were outside so much at lunchtime, because you imagine it would be raining all the time. I guess we were outside when it was raining, but generally we’d just … I think the weather was pretty good when I grew up. And we would be outside playing sport, running around kicking balls, knocking each other over, making up dangerous games to try and injure each other.
I was at the same high school from 11 to 18. Maybe that’s not called high school in other places, but that’s what I remember most, is just playing violent sports with my friends. I went to an all-boys school, so it may have been more violent than other schools, but it was fun and I survived.
1) What does he remember most?
2) How does he remember the weather?
3) What was rough?
