John Hughes was an amazing man and created some of the best movies EVER. The Breakfast Club is by far one of my favorites and when I heard Theme Thursday was paying homage to this great flick I was thrilled to get involved. The topic for today is, which member of the Breakfast Club were you most like in high school? Cue crickets.
I honestly really didn't fit into any one particular of these character roles. Let me break it down for you.
The Brain: Yes, I was smart. I was on the honor roll a time or two. But you wouldn't catch me dead anywhere near the science club, the chess club, the math club, or the physics, physics club.
The Jock: Sure, I liked sports. I went to varsity football games, wrestling meets, and baseball games. I wore my friend's football jerseys on game days. However, I did not participate in high school team sports.
The Princess: Um, no. The only thing Claire and I had in common was our attraction to bad boys and virginity.
The Criminal: I was never in trouble per say in high school but boy did I have a mouth on me. (Still do) I definitely had no problem telling my geometry teacher to go "F" off or asking my biology teacher if Barry Manilow knew he raided his closet. I had my silly moments of getting into trouble like egging people's houses or emptying ketchup packages into mailboxes. I got drunk at high school dances in the bathroom via hairspray bottles full of liquor from my parents bar (sorry mom) and went to parties I wasn't supposed to be at.
The Basket Case: Other than being the plain Jane that ended up going to prom (as friends only) with the Homecoming King, I don't have anything in common with this one.
I knew each and every one of these characters in high school. I was a friend to everyone. I knew everything about everyone. I guess that makes me Carl the Janitor. I was the eyes and ears of the institution.
