Homecoming is tomorrow.

In my school, we don’t have a Homecoming Dance.  The tradition is that there would be a homecoming football game, and people come to watch, all the while waiting for the announcement of the Homecoming king and queen.

Because the Class of 2010 is always treated as test subjects, the school decided to repair the football field this year, making it impossible to celebrate homecoming with a football game.

Instead, the Student Government Organization agreed to put up a carnival.  Henna tattoos, caricatures, live bands, games.

But, really, the purpose of this post is to talk about the Homecoming King thing.  Not an extensive discussion.  Just some random thoughts.

Well, anyway, I wanted to run this year for Homecoming King.  In fact, it’s been on my mind ever since sophomore year.  The way it worked was that aspiring candidates would be put into an election among the senior class, who would vote for the top three candidates for both king and queen.  From the top three, the entire school would vote for who they think should be the ultimate king.  Compared to the four initial girls who entered, there were about ten guys for king.

Pretty crazy.  The voting happened last week.  In the end, I didn’t make it.  Yep, time for a sad face.  It’s all right.  I’m over it.

Above is Greg, one of the three guys who made it past the senior class.  He really wants to win the title ever since last year.  We’ll see if the spotlight falls on him tomorrow.
