Things I remember from 6th grade:
The mom of my friend, Chelsea, who was a psychologist, came to school to talk about her profession. She brought with her a brain, in formaldehyde. I was fascinated, and touched it when she took it out. Another girl had to run to the bathroom to throw up.
Playing a game called four-square with a red ball during gym almost everyday.
Making a globe out of paper mache and painted continents.
Long summer days at the barn with my friend, Chelsea. She'd let me ride her horse Bargain.
The era of the pogo ball. I could hop mine around the entire neighborhood. Mine was purple and green (slightly more fluorescent than this picture I found on google) and had a full disk instead of the disk with the edges bevelled in.
My Dad got Rocky Mountain spotted fever, and had to rush to the hospital. It was terrifying, because I'd never really seen him sick before, other than a cold here and there.
Helping my friend, Nicole, deliver papers on her paper route.
Dollar matinee movies - Big Top PeeWee comes to mind.
Press on nails.
A chemistry set, in the basement. And no, I didn't blow anything up!
