We were gearing up for the final weeks of school and the end of the year competition between the homeroom classes. I had a HUGE crush on my chemistry lab partner, and since we shared a homeroom, we would also be on the same team. I had performed quite well in the 'Cracker Whistle' game (you ate two or three packages of Saltines and then attempt a wolf whistle) the previous year, so I signed up for it again. And I also volunteered to be a part of the Human Pyramid.
My crush ended up being one of the five 'base' people; I was placed on the next level. I tried to position myself so I would be kneeling on his back, but our side kept collapsing. Finally, I was moved to the opposite side, and we managed to hold our pyramid for the required ten seconds.
I also had a run-in with one of the 'undesirable' males in my class. For whatever reason, he and I ended up sitting in a shady doorway during the games. He kept inching closer to me; I kept backing away. Finally, I had no choice but to stand up and walk away. I was too shy/polite to tell him to get lost! I guess he got the hint I wasn't interested; he left me alone the following year.
