It's been a while since we talked about high school. And since a LOT of people from my high school read this, and this blog has gotten a little lackluster lately, let's go there!

I was e-mailing with Katie today when she reminded me about a girl who transferred to my high school our freshman year. Her claim to fame? She had six toes on each foot! Well, six toenails. The pinky toe was a doublewide (two bones, one toe) and it had two nails on it. She said she had been known to paint the nails and then drawn a smiley face beneath them, like a little toe face. The first time I saw it, I was a little creeped out, as I figure most people were, but then it got to be kind of cool. I mean, how many people have you ever met with extra appendages? She was also one of the first from our class to get married, I think, so obviously she worked those extra toes to her advantage. She was a really nice girl, too; just to clarify that she had more going her way than 12 toes.

I don't know what made me think of this but remember when they tried to give detentions for using the stairwells incorrectly? Someone decided it would alleviate traffic problems if students used one stairwell strictly for going upstairs, and one stairwell strictly for going downstairs. Yeah right. Maybe the 2 feet deep, chock-full backpacks that we all wore like turtle shells were the problem, taking up all the space and making it too crowded in the halls. If anyone reading this got one of the few detentions they handed out for improper stairwell use before ditching that plan altogether, please share.

Oh and last week, I was talking to a girl at work about high school dress codes. Our skirts had to be 2 inches above our kneecap. She said hers was the arm's length rule (skirt can't be shorter than the tip of your middle finger with your arm at your side). Why didn't they just put us in uniforms?


  1. I don't gross out easily, but one toe, two bones? eewwwwwwwww.

    and to answer your lingering question of the week: yes, definitely yes.

  2. To answer your lingering question: You mean like Auburn did?

  3. Was it on both feet? Oh heavens. I was thinking it was just on one. Regardless, as our ultrasound showed yesterday, our baby is working with 5 toes on each foot. Whew.


Oh goody!
