trojans talking

hate to disappoint but this is not a post about condoms but rather continues my exploration into my writing maturation. my high school newspaper, “The Trumpeteer” had a weekly column called “Trojans (our school mascot) Talking”. When I was a senior in high school they posed this question:

What do you think of the semi-formal being held in the cafeteria instead of a banquet room or ballroom?

my 17-year-old, snarky answer:

‘I’m sure that everyone would rather have it held in an elegant ballroom at a remote resort, but if it has to be held in the cafeteria, let’s hope the decorations aren’t too tacky so as to disguise the regular decor of the Catalina cafeteria.’

i wish i could say i was less cynical 22 years later, but clearly my post “even the wings couldn’t save Hooters” shows i’m still swimming in the cynical pool. that’s okay though because i believe Mr. Shaw said it best:

“The power of accurate observation is frequently called cynicism by those who don’t have it.”
– George Bernard Shaw
