First Grade Legends



Can you find me? I'd offer a prize but I don't think it's too much of a challenge. Just look for the saddest, most frightened looking one. Can you find anyone else you know in there?
  • #2 was my neighbor. He taught me to play baseball.
  • #3 worked in the hospital kitchen with Twin, Fella, Tot and I.
  • #4 never had a name. I just called him Wolf-Boy. Teachers used to make me sit next to him because they said I was a peacemaker.
  • #5 made fun of me when I was learning to ride a bike. He said he learned to ride when he was 2...without training wheels.
  • #8 was later reunited with me in high school. He claimed I liked him in first grade because I let him use my fat crayon.
  • #10 liked to kiss girls. I think he was German.
  • #13 signed my cast when I broke my arm tightroping the fence. I thought I was soo cool.
  • #15 was my very first love. He called me an a**hole and I refused to eat for weeks. My mom was really worried.
  • #16 had a swimming pool at her house. She used to vacation at beaches and bring back seashells for us. She told us to take our vitamins every day. One time we had a substitute teacher and I was too scared to ask to use the bathroom so I peed at my desk and they had to call my mom to pick me up.
  • #18 just graduated with Tot. I heard he used to pee on his bathroom walls.

That's really cool, ed. Inspiring. I may have to do a similar thing myself. I wish I could make the picture a little bit bigger to find you, but I guess #12.

Hmm...sorta close...#12 always had her dad fix her hair. My dad fixed my hair for church once and my mom said he made me look like a little Indian.

I'll see what I can do to make it easier to find me, but meanwhile, you all should TOTALLY post class pictures. That would be sweet! Lance, I was hoping you'd be in my picture by an odd coincidence. I think we must be the same age-ish.

ed said...

Tot said...

you know....Ed is the most creative person I know and I think official Knit'n'Play tshirts and mousepads, assembled by her would be the most PIMP awesome creations EVA!

Tot said...

BY THE WAY! WHO IS #18?

lance said...

#22 was my second guess. I can't believe how much you remember about first grade! I'll see what I can find for photos. I would totally buy some knit 'n play gear. You can make it at cafepress you know. That's where I made the palabradores t-shirts if you remember.
