Day in the Life of the Black Kat

The Black Kat decided to take a stroll down the halls of Whitesburg High. On its way to the first homeroom, it overheard the following conversation. “Margaret Caudill is getting married!” “Really?” When and to whom?” “I heard,” said another, “that she is going to marry Jesse Hall, June 17!” With this bit of information, the Kat continues on its way.

After first period the Kat went along in a group to second period. It seemed everyone was talking about Linda Franklin and Larry Taylor’s wedding June 3. During the pep rally it noticed that there seemed to be a chain reaction of love for Nancy Brock was certainly making eyes at Roger Collins. Mable Bentley could hardly cheer for she couldn’t keep her eyes off Dean Craft. The Black Kat detected a slight change of pace on one side of the gym. Joyce Bowen and John Craiger were about to break the chain reaction and when it reached Jewell Collins and Donald Brown, it came to a screeching halt. The Kat was about to give up on the idea of love but it soon got back into the swing of things during third period. This is when the Kat heard that Sandra Kay Day and Harold Frazier just couldn’t be broken up.

The thought of this brought a special gladness into the Kat’s day. Then at lunch the Kat stayed with Nancy Gibson because she had that special glow, which meant that Roger Blair had to be somewhere near.

Fourth period the Kat passed Sheila Day and was glad to hear that she and Stevie Hale are still going together. The Kat also heard that Eileen Noble and Rush Tackett are going to get married. The Kat was very glad and was fixing to congratulate her when Barbara Hall announced that she was engaged to Alvin Eldridge. Through all the excitement, congratulations completely slipped the Kat’s mind.

Fifth period the Kat found out that Sandra Bryant became Mrs. Bobby Caudill, Feb. 6. The Kat also heard that Judy Hammock and Larry Brown are getting along fine.

As the day came to a close, the Kat was proud to say that all in it had been a nice day.
