When I was a senior in high school (class of ‘88) a friend of mine was a typical goof off and when one of our teachers figured he’d take him down a few pegs by asking him to recite the Preamble to the Constitution, he immediately started singing the Schoolhouse Rock version…. the teacher had no choice but to say, “Good job”… he got a standing ovation!
This thread reminds me of Shari Lewis and Lamb Chop…. “This is the song that doesn’t end… it just goes on and on my friend”…. sighhhhhh
I thought the exact same thing.
Oh I hope you weren’t seriously mistaking Alanis Morissette for Frank Sinatra
Ok, showing my age here but wayyyy back when I was in school 91 was a B… 93 and above was an A
My brother and sister (7 and 6 years younger than I, respectively) used to eat peanut butter, miracle whip, cheese, bologna and jelly sandwiches… with pickles if we had any. Unfortunately, I’d end up having to make them sometimes… talk about NASTY! But, they loved them and ate them for years… from the age of about 3 or 4 up until they were teenagers if I remember correctly.
My mom had eczema on her hands and feet when she was pregnant with my brother. It started clearing up the day he was born. Turns out she was “allergic” to him. She had an antibody factor in her blood (A2 positive instead of plain old A pos) that wasn’t all that compatible with his.
A microplane would work better… and probably feel better too. But, now that I think about it… microplanes weren’t around much in 1992. Time to grab a rasp or some nice sandpaper from the garage.
Xerox… the OG of copiers…. notice I didn’t say printers… but copiers. The company actually started in 1906, supplying photographic paper and photography equipment. Used to be called The Haloid Photographic Company. They came up with the toner that was the bane of existence for anyone who had to change a cartridge of the nasty stuff in old copiers.
oh, but with mimeograph, and it’s lovely purple ink… there’s the added bonus of that smell. I remember all of us kids in class being all excited when the teacher walked in the room with a stack of papers that were literally hot off the presses…. yeah, kids were weird back then too LOL
