I would have savored the moment so fully.

Leon High School LOST the overall sweepstakes at State Latin Forum, for the first time in sixteen years, including the ten that I attended.

They came in FOURTH!

1. Maclay
2. Escambia
3. FSUS
4. Leon


HA! ha HA!

Deborah, her in fabulousness, won 2nd place in Customs (from not studying at all), and seventh in Heptathlon, which she doesn't tend to care about anyway. Her school, Lincoln, placed ninth overall.

Sheer jealousy (for me at least)

I remember back in high school, Leon seemed to win everything. Math, Latin, Science fair, etc. All the time. We imagined the Leon crowd as boastful, dismissive, holding us in contempt. (Surely you were all very nice people, but we didn't know that).

When we finally beat Leon in Brain Bowl after three years of losses, there was a considerable joy in taking down a peg those who had defeated us so many times.

Leon Latin's bragging rights came with snide condescending over-the-top cruelty.
