School Discos

AlexSuzeI love autumn. A lot of my childhood memories seem to be set in this season. That means that around this time of year the light in the early mornings, the mist enveloping the hills as I drive to work and the deep red sunrises and sunsets make me feel deeply nostalgic for my younger years.

Of course a lot of those memories involve my loves and lusts at school.

One that I think most of us share is the fascination and excitement that accompanies reminiscences about school discos. It’s hardly surprising is it? Young people, overflowing with hormones, party clothes, music, it’s always going to be sexually charged by the time the sixth form disco comes around.

As late summer through to Christmas seemed to be the season for such events I think I have at least part of the explanation for my love for this time of year. I’ll have to recount some of my experiences at a later date.

One thing I haven’t experienced is a relatively new phenomenon (at least in my experience) the school themed night at nightclubs. I suppose it’s an event where you can do all the things you used to do illegally, just legally … smoke, drink have sex … and all in school uniform. I can certainly see the attraction. Anyone been to one?
