I don’t have many regrets and even of the ones I do I don’t wish I could go back in time to change them, except for one.

I wish I had paid more attention in grade 12. Not for the reasons you think though.

I really wish ‘we’ had chosen a better grad song, there is every chance we didn’t and some teacher was forced to make a last minute choice.

Trooper – We’re Here For A Good Time (Not A Long Time)

Because there is nothing a bunch of 17 year olds can relate to more than a song from 1977.

Don’t get me wrong, I love Canadian music and even like the song, but every time I hear it I think, ‘Why?!’.

There were so many great current songs when I graduated in…*cough cough cough*.

So yes, I would go back and maybe decide to show up for more than 20% of school days and maybe participate in the selection of the song that was supposed to send us off into the next phase of our lives.

But…that also sounds exhausting, so I’ll just keep on asking why and shaking my head every time I hear the song instead.

Agree? Disagree? Let's chat!
