1. What were you doing 10 years ago?
I had two kids in high school and was busy every weekend hosting slumber parties and sleepovers and band hootnannies, and cooking suppers for the marching band, and chaperoning field trips for the band, and selling concessions for the band, and sitting parked in the school parking lot for hours and hours waiting for the band to return from something, and teaching middle school and loving it, and taking students to dinner theatres and live plays, and chairing committees and writing speeches for administrators and thinking up mottoes for various and sundry school things, and transporting a van full of teens to Broadway musicals all over the southern part of the state and the northern part of Kentucky, and being a Band Booster officer, and taking students to Academic Competitions, and setting up spelling bees, and tons of other activities, some of which my mind has deleted for reasons of self-preservation.
