The Q and A entry below reminded me that in Junior High School we used to circulate Slam Books. Note books, like, say, a secretarial dictation book, used to be passed around. Each page had question on it, much like the Q and A below. Lines were numbered, and you answered the question on your numbered line. So it looked like this>>
Page one: Choose your line
Page two: what is your favorite food?
2--Big Mac, fries, chocolate shake,
4--Liver and onions...just kidding...broccoli...still kidding
Page three: Best friend's name
And so on for many "favorite" questions. They were called slam books because in the later pages you posted a one line comment about the person named on the top of the page; thus
Page 31: What do you think about Anna
1--Talks too much
2--Mascara? Oh, come on.
4--Giggles when she is near any boy
5--Goofy about Chad. Digs Tom Hanks movies. Lose some weight, Anna
Slam books were against school rules, but they circulated anyway. I think they caused lots of hurt feelings... but that was Junior High life. The what is your favorite this or that was fun, and you could compare all the answers with your own. You could see how you "fit in" .
The fun part was being creative. You could compliment someone you "really liked", or you could pan someone you didn't. The hard part was reading what the gang thought about you.
Do they still exist... or do they live on now in our Journals?
