It was very confusing to a sophomore when entering the sacred halls of Wallace Senior High School. There were so many more options on extra curricular activates, and I did not want to squander those precious years. After all, these were the real golden years of life. So, I carefully read all of the possible clubs that were available.
It was a good thing that I knew the alphabet, After all, I had nine previous years of prime one education in the Wallace School District not excluding one fine year of Kindergarten complete with a diploma from Mrs. Goldstein's class.. My highly educated eyes carefully scanned down the list of clubs, and they were all listed be letter abbreviations. Well, with my finely tuned brain I should have no problem figuring out what type of club each abbreviation stood for. And so the adventure began.
I was so excited when I signed up for the following clubs.
FTA-well, here was my first major let down. I thought that FTA stood for FUN TIMES AHEAD.
Wow, who would have ever think that it stood for FUTRE TEACHERS OF AMERICA!
I was looking through the members of that club in my old year books, and had to laugh when I was some of the ones who were members, Evidently they thought that it stood for FUN TIMES AHEAD, too.
FHA-Here is one that I thought would be great. After all, FHA must stand for FUTURE HOUSE BUILDERS OF AMEICA. I could learn a good trade and learn how to build my own home in the future. Wrong again. No, and imagine my surprise when I went in and it was all girls and they wanted me to put on flowered apron. Nope, it was FUTRUE HOMEMAKERS OF AMERICA. Well, I was close.
Ok, I was growing weary of the letter ones, so, ah, there was one that sounded good. I could join an organization and do my school some good. It was called "Reager's Rangers" Hm, I thought to myself, this was probably a group like the Texas Rangers, only it was geared towards students policing other students. This was just what I was looking for. Whoops, foiled again. I just didn't look good in a skirt shaking those pom poms.
Alas I gave up trying to find a club to belong to, and just found some classes that sounded good,
Home Economics. Now, that sounded like a good, fundamental business course.
