The time machine is headed back to high school...come along.

1. Who was your best friend? For most of the years it was Brandi Jackson. We did everything together. We even felt the need to work at the same place. The last couple of years we slowed the hanging out process due to different ideas of fun.

2. Did you play any sports? I had an athletic pass. Does that count? Our school counted Dance Team as a sport. The husband and I still have feuds about this topic. I really don't care if it was a sport or not, I just wanted to get into the events for free. That's me SPORTY debra.

3. What kind of car did you drive? I had a White Nissan Sentra. I still have the car keys. I loved it. I loved it even more than you think. I would like to tell you what year it was but seriously I don't remember. After that car was wrecked (I don't want to talk about that) I got a Mitsubishi Mirage, also white, that was nicer but I didn't like it as much.

4. It’s Friday night. Where were you? Eagle Stadium. Oh the memories! The lights, the sounds, the fun are unmatched to this day. At half time we would go out and perform some goofy routine. The highlight of the night, for me, was officer strut. Yes, it is as bad as it sounds. Before the team would perform we (the officers) would do our own little dance while the announcers introduced us. As shallow as that sounds it was great fun.

5. Were you a party animal? That was not me. I was a little too scared to party. One time (okay...two times) I did go to a teen dance club in Houston. My parents didn't know until I told them...that same weekend. I just couldn't help myself...I was so scared they would find me out. About the club: I loved the dancing and music but I hated the drunk smelling guys thinking they could dance all over you.

6. Were you considered a flirt? Hmmm. I really don't think so.

7. Were you in the band, orchestra or choir? I was in performing choir. It wasn't as important as it sounds. I enjoyed it. I was also in the girls class act choir and my name made the credits as the choreographer for pop show.

8. Were you a nerd? Most likely borderline...who knows?

9. Were you ever suspended or expelled? No. I had detention often. I don't remember why. Probably tardies.

10. Can you sing the fight song? Yes. If the music were on I could belt out the words with strength. I think that is my husbands, the football player, fault.

11. Who was your favorite teacher? Mr.Johnson from Middle School. He was cool. He gave me a writing award. My least favorite was a guy from Intermediate school, Mr.Skinner, who would spray WD-40 on me because he said I was squeaky.

12. What was your school mascot? The Eagle

13. Did you go to the Prom? Of course. I wouldn't miss that party.

14. If you could go back, would you? Sometimes I think so...

15. What do you remember most about graduation? Feeling so sad that this was actually happening. And then again very excited about the future.

16. Where were you on Senior Skip Day? Did we have one?

17. Did you have a job your senior year? What wasn't my job. I worked at the movie theater for years and then my senior year I needed a change. So change I did. A lot of job change.

18. Where did you go most often for lunch? This is a tie between the steak and potato bar and the taco salad line. I know this is weird but I liked our school food.

19. Have you gained weight since then? Sadly yes. Well not sadly! I would look weird if I were still that small. I think I weighed all of 100 lbs.

20. What did you do after graduation? KW Community College for a year. Got married then went to Baptist Bible College in Springfield, MO.

21. What year did you graduate? The Class of 1995

22. Who was your Senior Prom Date? The love of my life...Ernest

23. Are you going/did you go to your 10 year reunion? Missed it due to a youth function. I was able to see all the pictures and that was better. We sat and laughed for hours. It is crazy how much we all change.

If you dare go back in time with me let me know...

It was so fun to take some time and look the old yearbook. I must have looked hilarious sitting and shooting pics of the yearbook pages.

I loved high school.

Ok, I know that am a little late on reading this, but that is funny. I don't even have a clue where my year book is. I was talking to Tracy Crow(Baker) two weeks ago and she was cleaning out the trophy case at the high school. It still had our cheerleading pictures from 1994. That is crazy. She teaches at NCHS and is the Varsity Cheerleading couch.
