I was one of the new kids and I had just struck up a friendship with another new girl from St Charles Lousiana. During art class she asked me to help her draw a gull. Being from Asbury Park NJ(the Shore) ,I generously drew her three or four stylized birds consisting mostly of large V shapes. When I handed the paper to her she said,"What that?" "Gulls," I said, "Sea gulls." She wadded up the paper and threw it away yelling at me angrily, "I said GULL, like I'm a gull and you're a gull!" I've always felt that that exchange was the reason we never become really good friends. Barbara Hill Hudson bhhudson[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE]
