I ran the photo booth at MTHS's Homecoming Dance last Saturday night, which meant that I photographed the group and couple shots of the Homecoming Court. While doing so, I realized something:
This term I have every one of those ten kids (King, Queen, and two escorts from each of the four classes) either in class or as an active member of at least one of my after-school activities.
Let me 'splain: That means that every member of the Homecoming Court is a Speech kid or a Drama kid. Over half of the group are both. Heck, two of them are also on the Stage Crew.
The Stage Crew, people. Techies as Homecoming royalty.
Mountain Town High School is really weird.
P.S. There was also a junior who showed up wearing a formal black and silver tuxedo vest over a long-sleeved camo shirt.
P.P.S. And a bunch of kids asked me to come dance with them since I looked bored. I declined, since I needed to stand guard over the camera/money box; but it was a) super nice of them and b) weird that they're nice enough to want to make sure the grownups are having fun too.
P.P.P.S. I was a little sad I didn't take them up on it when the "Superman" song came on and I discovered I know the choreography better than they do.
P.P.P.P.S. Seriously, though. It's like I'm teaching at Wayside School.
