11. I hated those damned suits -
Gods, they were awful. And it seemed that every year they changed the color to an even more repulsive one. The ones we had to wear in senior year were a particularly unlovely shade of yellow that did nothing for anybody's complexion. Ours had the elastic inner bloomers over which went the shorts. I think I need to go and have another rum and cola to restore my sanity.
