I Spy Highschoolers


Yesterday on our way home from school we got stopped in front of the high school as the buses were passing. Large yellow container after large yellow container carrying cool kids with ear buds. I didn’t know there were so many of them! Here is a little video of what it looked like…

Then as we were turning into our neighborhood we saw several of them walking to their homes. They had different hair than us, different clothes, and their feet seem to be made of lead. It was strangely fascinating to observe. I didn’t know so many of them lived in our neighborhood. Was I just as strange?  Will my kids be? Highschoolers are a very unusual species.

  1. Hahahahaha! When I read the first sentence, I laughed out loud. Really! I love the earbuds remark. At first, I was like, what’s an ear bud.


    Jeanette is so funny! That video is so funny.

    I’m trying to remember what I was like in high school. It was a different time, wasn’t it? We had walkmans if I remember. Is that correct? But, I don’t remember them being popular, really. People used them in the gym, but I don’t remember that people brought them to school so much, or listened to them on the bus. Of course, we had ear phones – you know those big things that covered your entire ear. Maybe it just wasn’t as cool.

    Thanks for the trip down memory lane!
