Welcome to Weekend Writing Warriors’

8 Sentence Sunday Blog Hop

Picking up where we left off last week; Chapter Three of my Swiss boarding school memoir, “Internat Adventures”.

Preamble: Fall, 1968. Thanks to Angelika, we now had a way to sneak out of the house. Not getting caught the first time gave us the confidence to do it again!

Read last week’s post HERE.

Next time, it was just Judy and me. Jennifer got cold feet and M.L. decided that Angelika was more fun to go out with. Sure; she had good drugs, and we were just boring innocents by comparison. Judy’s older brother, Vaughan, also attended the school and he and his roommate, Serge, (whom Judy had a crush on), were to come with us. How exciting; my first real date! They were waiting for us down the road. Vaughan was tall and handsome, with a sexy British accent. My heart did a little “flip flop” and judging by his smile, so did his.

  1. Reading this made me think of my teen years and the crazy stuff we did 🙂 I have no regrets either. Ah, to be young and carefree like that again.

    Loved it Debbie! Can’t wait to read what happens next 🙂

    1. Glad you enjoyed it, Corina! 🙂 We were pretty innocent, compared to some kids. Never got into drugs, etc. Thanks for visiting and Happy Thursday to you.

  2. More suspense. We were threatened with suspension for doing this. Did you have the same penalty? It became more difficult each time.

    1. Hi Carol; Immediate expulsion would have been our penalty, but, we were young and reckless. 😀 Seems we have some experiences in common. Thanks for visiting!

  3. Oh those boys with the British accents, especially in the 1960’s, yes? Your adventures would have made a great movie (well, never say never, right?). Another excellent excerpt!

    1. Oh yeah; British accents were hot then, (still are, IMO 😉 ). Might make a good movie if I spice it up a little more. LOL Glad you’re enjoying my story Veronica. 🙂

  4. This is great! Sneaking out of boarding school for a double date – woohoo! My straightlaced Catholic upbringing didn’t provide openings for stuff like this, so I’m really interested in the adventures other people had!

    1. Yes, it was quite the adventure at the time. Living dangerously! 😀 Glad you’re enjoying it Marcia. Thanks for visiting.

    1. Yeah – boys! 😀 I was always afraid of drugs and mostly stayed away from them. Tried pot a few times in later years, but it did nothing for me, except make me hungry. LOL Thanks for visiting, Charmaine. 🙂
