Favorite memory from High School/Confession

Dragging Main.   Linda Harbert would be driving and there were usually 5 or 6 of us.   After awhile, we'd get bored so whoever was sitting front right would duck down, and the rear seat would follow like dominoes, leaving Linda by herself.   Nice girls did not drag Main by themselves. The fit she threw was always so entertaining.   Problem was, it was a little dangerous because Linda would also duck down, and she is still not known for her driving skills.   Still makes me smile!
