I liked it better than events we have held in the past.
I remember three things at AAC, but we might have only physically gone twice:
Female superintendent driving a bulldozer to jail – though it took a few months.
A really bad motivational speaker.
A really good kid motivational speaker.
For me, traveling to those things were a mess. The easiest was when I took a Dallas County Bus.
This time, we took a Dallas County Bus to a Dallas facility, Ellis Davis Field House, one much nicer than Loos near the house. . Started out with a flash mob that the Superintendent joined, and then an okay multimedia presentation by the man, featuring the man and his favorite film clips.
I finally figured out his age. He’s the same age as my husband, so he graduated from West Point as the first class of women entered. I would have in the second class had I accepted my appointment.
I thought it would be more fun rocking a blue uniform with a pencil skirt on Tuesdays and Thursdays and letting the Air Force pay for me to major in Computer Science at University of Southern Mississippi.
Rather than crashing in a plane myself, one of the upperclassmen I dated failed to learn to fly, crashing in a training mission. Always makes me sad to think about it, because Tim really wanted to be a pilot. Sucks to fail.
Then again I crashed a bicycle through the windshield of a car, not near as exciting and I did walk away, sort of.
Any way, hoping the presentation is online as we will be looking at copyright and fair use next week and examining it would be a fun exercise.
By the way, I also stick to things a bit longer – over 10 years at Texas Instruments as a Systems Analyst and 20 years as a DISD teacher.
Speaking of which a former student and former teacher at my school, walked up to me and said she couldn’t believe I was still there, I drug her over to my principal and told him to tell her to stop, she was being rude. She also did it to one of my coworkers who has been there longer.
