Recently a friend of mine reminded me of my arch-nemesis when I was in Jr. High School. His name was Boyd Stout. Now I think it all started out, as all hatred for boys starts out, as a crush. I think I had a little crush on him while I was in elementary school. And I am not sure how this eventually turned into disdain, but turn it did.
Maybe it started to turn when he thought he was a "rappa'" in our elementary school choir program entitled "We're Going Green". He would dance around the stage singing "E-C-O-L-O-G----Y, Ecology!" I thought this was a bit ridiculous, although I was only 10.
All I know is that when we were in Jr. High we did not like each other. His posse and my friends would make fun of each other. He would call my one friend that was super tall "Tower" and when she walked by they would all act scared , and make sound effects like a giant was walking past. So in turn we started calling one of their posse "Earthquake" and when he would walk by we would all shake like it was an earthquake.
There was quite the war going on. He stole my locker combination, and in turn we stole his. He threw my headband down some busy stairs and so I of course threw his hat down the stairs. If I remember correctly my friend poured red cream soda on one of his posse members' head. I hit one of them on the head with my Bible. This was serious business!
Oh the arch enemies of our lives!
When my friend Mindy asked me if I knew Boyd Stout I still had a little quiver of disdain run through me. And apparently she doesn't even know him, but a group of Provoites is going around using the expression "Out like Boyd Stout". I am curious to know where this expression came from.
*Disclaimer: I no longer have ill feelings towards this guy, so if you know him or are him, please do not take offense to this. If anything this feud added entertainment to my life as a jr.high school girl.
