In all my current blurriness, I have nothing better to do than look up old high-school people on the web.
I dated a Mormon guy my senior year of high school. He'd just moved from California, where he'd been converted by a girlfriend he kept talking about. Before his conversion, he used to be into drugs and rock-n-roll. After he arrived in Azle, Texas, he still played guitar, but the thrill was gone.
He was a nice person, but there was no spark. I tried mentally, though: At the time, I was into "exploring religion," so I attended his branch of the Mormon church in Azle (and took to reading the Book of Mormon). (One of the elders had no answer when I asked him where cave people came from, since Adam and Eve allegedly appeared so perfectly intact...) There was also a big dramatic moment when I was working on the school paper, and he left the newsroom, saying he was going home... When I looked downstairs, there he was, talking to some other girl! When he called me that night, there was a big blow-up over the girl...He ended up driving 20 miles to appease me. For no reason, really. After dating for about 2 months, we broke up soon after.
Anyway... When I just looked him up, I found out he is now an Assistant Principal in Utah----making $68,000 a year! The guy was stupid! Not said in a mean way, but the guy was really not very intelligent at all! And he's now making $68,000 a year! What the fuck!
