After watching the season finale of Glee I couldn't help but have flashbacks to my senior year of high school choir/drama trip to NYC.
Much like Glee we were a bunch of dramatic kids from lots of backgrounds singing through the streets.
Well, not literally through the streets, but you get the point.
High School + Drama Club + Choir = I'm not sure what, but it sure was comical.
When it became time to take the obligatory trip to the Statue of Liberty though I had other plans...
By this time in my life I was 17, about to graduate from high school, thought I "knew what was cool in NYC" and sure as hell wasn't going to the Statue of Liberty for the second time.
When the bus dropped us off we had approximately 2.5 hours to hop on the boat to see lady liberty before we had to report back to the bus for pick up.
After about 5 minutes in line for the boat I grabbed 3 of my friends and went AWOL on the choir trip by hailing a famous NYC yellow cab.
I'm not sure who I thought I was at this point but I'm fairly sure I was wearing blue tinted glasses and thought I was super hot...
I told the cabby to take us to SoHo because I had heard it was a "super cool artsy place" and we should totally go there and act like adults.
I'm also sure we didn't stick out like 4 teenagers from Canton, Ohio at all.
After wandering around a shady dirty street we freaked out realizing we were way far away from where we were supposed to be and hailed a cab back to our group right on time.
No one even knew we were gone - SCORE!
About a week later though the honeymoon was over and we got called into the dean of students office because we had been made.
One would think we should have been suspended for skipping out on part of a school trip and heading out into the streets of NYC as unchaperoned children but I *think* we only got detention, how I'm not really sure.
As I wrap this post up I'm beginning to think there really isn't a point to this memory dump other than I was soooooooooooooooo a cast member of Glee in 1998.
