When the weightless plastic beach ball was thrown out the window it didn’t occur to any of us just how threatening this object would be to the safety of the zero people that happened to be passing by.”

3.  Turning the lounge into a poster factory minutes before the pep rally

Looking back on these great memories, the seniors realize how much they will miss their time in the senior lounge together.
