the girl in the broadjump pit
Posted Wednesday, April 17, 2019 12:54 PM

I remember a day when myself and 2 other boys threw a girl into the broadjump pit at Lyons Elementary.  I don't remember what grade we were in, but I think my partners in crime were Chris Zorn and Gary Usher.  If I'm wrong, please correct me.

For the life of me, I can't remember why we threw the girl in the pit, and I can't even remember who the girl was.  If you know, please tell.

I do remember we were sternly reprimanded, but I can't remember what our punishment was.  Seeems like the pit was wet, but we didn't know that when we threw her in.  I think we were just trying to have fun with her, but our logic was faulty, which is normal for boys that age.

It's interesting that through all these years I still remember this event, and from time to time, my mind brings it back up.  Maybe it's my conscious!  :-)
