Day 28. Two confessions.
im not sure how many of you know this....but once upon a time when i was 15...and my parents were out of town..and i didnt have my license nor my permit..................i stole my sisters car to drive to my friend brooke's house cuz i was bored. i then joy rided around her neighborhood, picked up another friend, and drove back home. i got grounded for months (which ended up only being a few weeks..teehee)..... after my mother found out via THE INTERWBZ when i was bragging to all my friends on MSN messenger.......anyways. i was in deep shiz and it was the stupidest thing i ever did.
but the best part about it?
a. the first thing my dad said, was 'well i know where she gets it from. i used to take my parents car out all the time when i was 13'
b. i met my boyfriend because i was under house arrest. holllaaaaaa.
i dont think i have ever told this to ANYONE.
so...here i am interwebz.... finally getting this off my chest after oh...13 years? -_-
when i was in elementary school, i was on the 'student council'...mostly it was just a handful of kids who got elected to talk about school during one of the lunch hours.
well, as the council, we decided to put a suggestion box in the office so students could put suggestions in there so we could duscuss ways we could improve our school. (not like we really had any power to do anything about our school?)
the suggestions usually consisted of 'get vending machines' (in which im pretty sure i promised in my election speech) and 'no homework!' and 'cake for lunch' and 'FIRE MRS. DUNG' (our school nurse, whos last name really was DUNG)....and 'RECESS ALL DAY!'
well..me and my friends...we were hard-a's. and we liked to swear alot. now, i knew swearing was bad, didnt really understand what those words meant, i just knew it was cool and bad, so i did it. (im the perfect poster child for the bad kid in a seminary video....elementary style)
anyways, we would come up with tons of suggestions and stuff them in the box.
well.............i remember once i wrote a LONG letter to the box, annonymously, describing how the 'bathrooms smelled like hell and ass' and used other curse words in which i can't quite remember....but i know i used at least 5. (please imagine a chubby 9 year old nicole scribbling these words out onto wide ruled binder paper with my lisa frank pencil).
i remember proof reading it with my friends on the playground, and one of my old teachers was on yard duty that day.
"what ya reading there?"
i shoved the crass 'suggestion' into my overalls pocket and said
"oh nooooothing mrs. wheeler!"
...i then ran the the office at the speed of light to deliver my inappropriate suggestion before anyone could stop me.
upon entering student council later that week, the president made an announcement....that the suggestion box would no longer be in the office, because they were getting letters that involved inappropriate language that was offensive..and the suggestions started turning into really mean rants. students were cussing in the suggestions so the box was no longer allowed.
.............................they cancelled 'the box' because of me.
because of my bad-a 4th grade self.
i really do feel so much better now that i confessed that one.
