What I Remember About my High School TV News Team

  1. This photo somehow made its way back to me today
  2. He lied about the way his last name was pronounced.
    I learned this recently and was never able to confront him about why.
  3. He did a really good impression of that one guy from Home Alone.
  4. He made a joke about me being on my period once when I was trying to get something finished for a deadline.
    And I'll probably never forgive him.
  5. He still tries to pick up girls we went to high school with.
  6. He insisted everyone call him "Tay-Tay."
  7. He was my co-anchor, owned a lot of sincere t-shirts I assumed were ironic when I met him.
    Our title sequence showed me smacking him over the head with a script.
  8. He was the subject of my first real documentary!
    And I went to his wedding last week!
  9. Once for an abstract film, we duct-taped him to a board, wrote the word "ART" across his chest, and filmed high schooler's reactions as we wheeled him through classrooms.
    He was also the best man at aforementioned wedding.
  10. He was a rapper that went by the name "White Crow"
    😬
  11. I probably thought this was a pretty decent outfit.
    My dress is covered in Daleks and Tardises.
