It IS a Small World After All

Now that I've gotten that song stuck in your head, I'll tell you why that is particularly true today. I was chatting with my carpenter about a story in our local newspaper, and he happened to mention something about his high school. This being St. Louis and all, of course I had to ask him "Where did you go to school?" He replied that it was a school in Des Moines. "Did I know you were from Des Moines?", I asked. He said Jim knew but that he didn't think he and I had discussed it. I told him I am from Des Moines as well. He was sure we didn't go to the same school, so when he said he graduated from Hoover High, I about fell off my chair. I also graduated from Hoover. As it turns out, he graduated a year ahead of me, and his sister Vicki graduated with me.

We are the Huskies, couldn't be prouder! If you don't believe it, we'll yell a little louder! small world is that? I'm off to drag out my yearbook.

The Hoover Huskies? That is quite an amazing coincidence that your carpenter went to Hoover.

That it has one of the same pep cheers as 99.9% of the rest of the high schools in the USA, not so much.

Stand up, sit down, fight, fight, fight! For the Hoover Huskies!
