This Class of '72 Yearbook provided the opportunity for seniors to list the good times and what they'll miss and - what they want to forget. This, naturally, also provided seniors with the opportunity to list some pretty odd and cryptic answers.
Kathleen and Karen above give answers the way I'm sure the Yearbook Committee envisioned. Kathleen will miss "roller skating with friends" and "Junior Skip Day", while Karen will miss "skiing" and "surprise parties". Pretty typical benign stuff..... but let's have a look at some other students whose answers are a bit more interesting....
Cheryl wants to forget "a wicked savage weekend" and "The Dead Body". WTF?
Carol gives a cryptic and chilling response. She wants to forget "the McGarrett's relationship with students".
Ray (AKA "Bogus") fondly remembers "smoking in the boys room", but dearly wants to forget "Uncle Al's trying to make me a man". God I'd love to hear the backstory to that one.
Holly wants to forget "the dead body".... what the hell happened here? That's the second student trying to repress memories of a dead body!
Ron really wants to forget "the slaughterhouse man" and "the Great White Father".
Gus wants to forget the day Carol wore hot pants. Poor Carol! Could this be the same Carol that wants to forget the mysterious Mr. McGarrett and his shady relationship with students?
Bush just wants to forget something called "The Human Sleeping Pill". He also makes mention of "five gross errors" which were listed by several other students.
Betty wants to forget all those fights with Charlie.. and "Charlie beating me up!" Is this a cry for help? And what was that unwanted thing she found in her pocket?
Tom is a member of the Drug Committee, yet he went to a Jethro Tull concert - those don't add up. Of course, he wants to forget "The Zodiac Man"... don't we all?
Remember that wicked savage weekend that somehow may have involved dead bodies? Well, Sparky was there too.
I Know What You Did Last Summer, Cheryl and Sparky!
Roach wants to forget his "steak knife" and "Purple Haze". Possibly related to the aforementioned dead body? I guess we'll never know... but I'm betting The Great White Father, Uncle Al and The Slaughterhouse Man are behind it all.
And finally, we'll end with good ol' Robert. No cryptic messages of abuse, no love for necrophilia, no dark words of a dead body.
"The good times: Partying all the time... I'll miss: Partying".Amen, brother.
