High School Quotes I Remember: Quote # 3

(I make no judgements about content. I'm simply purging some of the clutter that's been inside my head since 1983.)

"Marc, your behavior is exasperating!"

~Mrs. McMillion, my 11th grade English teacher, to me during class.

During one particularly boring English class, I started up some nonsense with Mrs. McMillion mostly for my entertainment. Her comment piqued my interest; not knowing what "exasperating" was, I quickly checked it out in the dictionary. I consider this the moment I became interested in language.

"On the banks of Muddlety River
Smeared against the sky
Stands an old, abandoned outhouse
Known as Nicholas High

Boy, that place is ever rotten
It's foul, it's putrid, it smells
Before I'd go to Nicholas County
I would go to HELL!!!"

(Based on Richwood HS's alma mater)

Of course, coming from a guy who just ate a ramp baconator, the "it's foul, it's putrid, it smells" is a bit ironic. :)
