ride captain ride

It was 8th grade biology class when I started writing the lyrics to Blues Image “Ride Captain Ride” on my desk.

That song has a lot of lines to the lyrics, and I started writing one line per day. Then one day I discovered another student from a different period started writing in lyrics to the same song so we alternated adding a line per day.

A couple of weeks went by and things were progressing nicely. The desk was filling up and the lyrics were perfect. The intrigue was tremendous.

I got so excited that one day I wrote “I love you” under the last line of the in-progress lyrics.

The next day when I came back to class, the other person had written, “I love you, too.”

I never found out who the other person was. Only a few days later, someone erased the entire desk. Maybe the teacher. Who knows.
