School Story:

I remember the projects I dragged everyone into -- building sets for dances and proms, and getting everyone to sell candles to raise money for it. Then having to fight to be allowed to reinstate a Sr. Class Play - and making people help raise money for it. Then directing it. Paul Whitescarver did Robert Redford's part in Barefoot in the Park justice! Blowing up a million balloons to attach to cars to advertise it..... I am always raising money for causes and dragging people into passion projects now - they tease me and call me the prom chairman. Some things never change!
