A week in yearbooks - 6th grade



Madisonville Jr. High. 6th grade. Second year of living in Louisiana. Had crushes on Grant Howard and Brooke Lagarde. Chanda Pennington was my best friend. Sometimes enemies with Ida Wager and Gina Gitz. David Windom bought me candy at the Piggly Wiggly after school. Shane Olson was sweet on me and couldn't celebrate birthdays due to his religion. Michelle Nicholas and Trina Collins were spitfires. I rode the bus with Tommy Roe, Caren Parrish, Grant & Brooke. Scott Short was very well spoken and had a patch of white in his hair. Eugene Wager stuck a No. 2 pencil in my arm and the tip of the lead is still there and visible. Ida Wager was the first girl I knew to go to 2nd base. Caren Parrish was the first person to have shown me a Playboy magazine. Dexter Talley and Grant Howard went through a phase where they stole candy from the Piggly Wiggly and stuffed them in their tube socks. Imogene Davenport's father used to show up to her basketball games drunk, yelling and stepping over the line of the court. Later that year, Brooke Lagarde got mad at me and used Imogene as his bully. He had her break my glass-tubed roller-ball peppermint lipgloss. I tripped him in the cafeteria for revenge.

I love this idea! And your memories of what went on in the sixth grade are giving me insight into why it was so hard to get my sixth grade class a few years back to focus. There's way too much stuff other than academics to think about when you're that age! Such a clever post.
