Meme Response to Roxotaku

roxotaku asks: Okay...tell me the craziest thing you did while still in High School!


Craziest thing I did?  Took the president's physical fitness test (ca. 1973) including a 1/4 mile run with a fever of 103...didn't realize I had a really bad case of Mono at the time.  Immediately went home, and went to the doctor the next day with the worst sore throat I ever had.

(or perhaps the time I ran away from home during Mardi Gras the same year.  Was gone a whole week....)

Nope, but my brother does. I'm in Idaho now...but I lived in NO for nearly 30 years, so if I think of anyplace as my home town, it's New Orleans...

That year, I did the hippie bit. Did just enough stuff to make enough money to live off of Red Beans and Rice and pay for a place to crash at night, talked, smoked grass (this was 1971), hung out in the French Quarter and watched parades. It was an interesting experience. Then I got bronchitis, and I decided my adventure was over and went home.

I was a semi-wild child.

New Orleans in the seventies - you sound(ed) like such a free spirit! I wonder if the city will ever be the same?

Never be quite the same, that's for sure...but it's not the first time it's got wiped...it's just been a long, long time since the last...

But I'm glad my brother's there again (He had moved to Houston for a long time)...cause now I have a place to go if I want to go back for Mardi Gras....LOL.

    You might try Nobunaga Concerto where a modern time traveler exchanges places with Nobunaga. Follows Nobuanaga historically
