A little history

So a few people asked about why I was in the dean’s office so much in hs.

That’s coming.

Mr Fab thinks I’m the one that burned down the mall.  I wasn’t.

In 1991 my sister was graduating med school.   We were at her medical school.  My grandparents called to talk to us (from Florida) and tell us that the mall in Long Island, across the street from our house, was burning down.  I immediatly called S1 & S2 and got the scoop.   The mall was burning down.  (they were a font of information)  It started in the basement of one of the stores.  It spread very quickly.   2 people were killed.  (I remember it being 3, but I am not arguing with newspaper articles).  The arsonist was a security guard who wanted to be a hero   He was charged with murder and arson.    And I’m proud to say I graduated with him.  (I didn’t know him though, cause that would have required making my circle of friends larger then S1 and S2 and that wasn’t gonna happen.)  Needless to say, he didn’t make it to the 10 year graduation.   Of course, neither did I because I hated it the first time why would I want to see them 10 years later.

  1. Hmm, it never occurred to me to try to burn something down and save people and then get called a hero. Sounds intriguing. Be right back!

    Now Red, don’t be a hero. It’s not worth the “fame”

  2. Hmmmm….I thought I was going to hear about the dean’s office. I am glad it wasn’t you about the mall, though. Of course I wouldn’t know you now if it had been.

  3. Wow! What a life you lead/led! Fascinating. I don’t remember hearing about that fire, but of course I went to high school in the middle of a cornfield in IL. 🙂

  4. Oh, by the way, here’s a really cool picture that has nothing to do with any of this. Just really like it.

  5. Why do I remember being home when the mall burned? (& by home, I mean my own place, not being a loser still living w/ Mom & Dad 😉 Why the heck were you guys out there? Was I stoned at the time? (A distinct possiblility)
