Duty makes us do things well, but love makes us do them beautifully. –Zig Ziglar
I had one other thought about High School and then I'm done revisiting. As I was thinking about class rings, I decided that they are sort of a status symbol, right? They have the year you graduated, your personal interests, perhaps your school mascot on them. It was only logical to move on to lettering, which is probably one of the biggest status symbols in High School. What girl didn't want to wear some hunk's letterman's jacket? Or his letterman's sweater, if he didn't have a jacket. Of course, girls could letter too, but the boys didn't line up to wear their sweaters or jackets. It just didn't work that way.
I have a school sweater from High School and I earned the letter on it. I'll bet you can't guess what I lettered in. Keep in mind that I'm an indoors kind of girl and not particularly coordinated before you guess what I lettered in. You'll never guess. So I'll just tell you. Home Ec. Yep. I'm that cool. I'll bet you didn't even know that someone could letter in Home Ec. But I attended enough events, took enough classes and participated in enough leadership positions that I could actually letter in a non-athletic event.
As always, I'm curious about what you all have to say on the subject. Leave me a comment and vote in the poll because today I must ask . . . did you letter in High School? I'm sure I've forgotten a category or two, so make sure to leave a comment if you don't find what you're looking for in the poll. I can't wait to read your comments. That is my favorite part about this poll series. In the meantime, have a great week!
