Today is homecoming at the high school I graduated from. The festivities kick off with a fun parade in the afternoon to get everyone pumped about the game later tonight. I used to have a blast marching in my dorky band uniform playing my clarinet all four years of high school. My high school days are WAY behind me so I have a different role these days. My job now is to keep the little kids from running under a fire truck for a Tootsie Roll. It's actually harder than it sounds.
I love seeing the adorable king and queen drive by on their convertible waving awkwardly at everyone. The energy of the football players riding on the fire truck is contagious and I always make a little wish that they will win their game. I hope (with just a tinge of jealousy) that they all have a blast tomorrow night at their dance.
If I was given a do-over for high school, I'd definitely pick homecoming. I'd dress up in my dorky band uniform and march in the parade, cheer for the football team at the game, then put on my new outfit and dance the night away with a cute guy. But since that isn't going to happen, I guess I'll have to be content dancing the night away with my two little guys! How about you, what high school event would you relive?
