I've just had a horrible flashback to Adidas popper tracksuit bottoms and fluorescent orange or green Adidas trainers.
Fuck I was cool.
Fuck I was cool.
Wearing LA Gear round my way was a sure fire way to having your BMX tyres let down and your pencil case filled with frog spawn. Nike Air Max were the kings of the playground until Ellesse came on the scene, then people got into massive skate shoes and you were no one unless you had Vans, DCs or Globes.
Brands that definitely marked you out as council scum and commanded heavy penalties to those foolish enough to wear them:
We had two, a fat but likeable Jamaican kid called Jeremy and an Indian or Pakistani girl with a difficult to pronounce name. I pulled her at my mate's 14th birthday party and i recall she had hairy legs. She mysteriously disappeared in year 10, rumour has it she was whisked back to whetever she was from and had an arranged marriage.
She was actually quite fit, I had a few cheeky tugs over the memory of groping her undeveloped boobs through her bra.
Small world! My girlfriend's stepfather was in the RAF and was stationed at Wildenrath, so she went to Kent, from 73 to 75, she was in Maidstone house, her name is Dawn, but apprently her nickname amongst the locals was 'rat'.Amongst the many schools I went to was the delightful Holyhead County Secondary! Our headmistress got done for shop-lifting! Nuff said??
We too played the switch the gas taps on in the science labs game, but other than that I was a complete geek and good girl at school.
Did anyone else on here go to Kent School in BFG?
There was a kid at our school who wasn't so discrete. He'd openly knock one out whenever and wherever the fancy took him. And he never appeared to focus his attention on any subject matter either. Just stood there wanking in the playground or the classroom. Apparently belted one out in the dining room as well. Kids used to clammer into the playground to see embarrassed female teachers try to convince him to put his tackle away. He was never right in the head and he was eventually fucked off to a 'special' school. Break time sort of became quite dull after that.
