Of course, during my high school years I had other priorities than Jughead, Betty, and Veronica (I always preferred Veronica). There were sports (tennis), part-time jobs (busboy, Cold Power sample delivery boy, etc.), and cars (my freedom machine), among other diversions. The only thing that loomed for me on the horizon was that dark Day Before School Starts. Maybe you know that feeling. June and July seem filled with so many days that it seems as though vacation will never end. Then August dawns and as each of its successive weeks expires, a mounting feeling of dread creeps into your thinking. Some obsessive teens create a countdown calendar and dutifully “X" out each precious dwindling August day as the reckoning inches closer. Some obsessives start their calendar in June, beginning the day after school ends.
