That’s me in high school. I attended your typical high school in suburban Los Angeles county in the late 1980s. And, yes, I really drove that car. Good times.
But, before I was allowed to drive that car to school — yes, I had to get permission — my friends and I ate from the little snack bar. Since the school district did not provide a cafeteria, I suppose that is why the campus was “open.” You could leave for lunch if you could get back to school in the 35 minutes we were allowed for lunch break. Ha!
Only if you drove at the speed of light.
But, we won’t go there. My parents might be reading this.
Anywho… we were talking about the snack bar. The snack bar sold such wholesome main dishes as Chili Cheese Fries, Nachos, and Pizza Bagels.
And they were yummy. Yes, yes, they were. Not as fine as these that I served my family, of course. The high school didn’t serve it on fine china, of course. But, they were yummy, nonetheless.
You can make your own Pizza Bagels!
