Should I Be Stoned at Work?: Part II

In my junior year in high school, I opted to take what they called Cooperative Education, which was kind of like a work study program. The best part about it is you received 1 credit for the class and 2 credits for the job.

The Ceiling Has Eyes

The Ceiling Has Eyes

Our new modern high school which had been built in 1972 had drop ceilings throughout and we discovered that there was about three feet of space between floors. If you climbed up on the sinks in the washroom and were strong enough, you could pull yourself up into the ceiling and could roam at will throughout the entire floor.
