I took summer school of my own accord for 4 years so that I could be in both Yearbook and Newspaper during the school year. I also had a tribble in my personal yearbook class drawer. Connect the dots on that one.
My third year editor spent the year trying out the idea that if you didn’t wash your hair it would come to some balance on its own and not be extremely greasy. This did not appear to be the actual case. He is un-Googlable. Perhaps he is no longer going by the name Dav-pronounced-Dave.
I am old. How old? Not that damn old, but old enough that we physically cut and pasted our yearbooks and newspapers and used a roll of thin black tape to outline things. You know how long that took? All year.
I thought, maybe I can do this for a living, somehow! But the world turned to computers and away from X-acto knives and my job was taken by smarter people. People like Savage Henry’s Layout Editor, Monica Durant. She sticks all the weird pieces of this weird magazine together, making a yearbook every month. A monthbook. Give her a round of applause and enjoy the rest of this monthbook.
