2. A genie has granted you one wish, but there are strict parameters—mainly, your wish can only undo something you’ve already done, and it must be something you did in high school. On what would you like to hit the undo button?
~ I would like to change my senior prom date. I didn't have a boyfriend, so I asked a friend to be my date. Looking back, I wish I'd asked my (now) husband to take me. That would be a really awesome memory for both of us, since I went to both my junior and senior proms with guys who were just friends, and J. didn't go to prom at all.
3. When’s a time you fought the law—and won? (And for our purposes, “the law” can mean your employer, your principal, your parents, etc.)
~ I got my 9th grade history teacher (and football coach) in trouble with the administration. When we were tested on A Farewell to Arms by Ernest Hemingway, he marked an answer incorrect on my test. A few days later, I realized that the notes he wrote as the "correct answer" were taken from the Cliff's Notes and were, in fact, wrong. I went to the principal and said that if I had to read a book, the teacher damn well ought to have to read it, too - instead of using the Cliff's Notes to write the test.
4. What was the most challenging class you’ve taken? Was it worth it?
~ No schoolwork was ever especially challenging for me, but I'm not sure if that's because I'm good at school or I never really took a difficult class. Probably both. But I like a challenge; maybe I'll try to find a subject that will kick my ass.
