#1 Putting “*school of hard knocks*” on your social media profile page.
#2 I was a three-time All-State swimmer in high school. I tell people about it all the time. So the answer is me, I scream that I peaked in high school.
#3 I remember a pep rally senior year when a kind of friend of mine blew up a condom as a balloon and started singing terribly into it. It was embarrassing and I was going to engage them to stop. Another friend of mine stopped me and said “let him. This is as good as it gets for him.” And f**k he was right.
#4 Constantly reminding us how much opportunity you had in high school .. like dude can I just have my Arby’s and go?
#5 Telling struggling young people, “These are the best years of your life. Enjoy them.”
Edit: Also, fighting with the same people you went to high school with over stupid s**t in your 30s.
#6 Bullying as an adult
#7 Todd “I went to 8 consecutive proms at the same high school.”
He was so athletic that as a Freshman he dated a junior and went to prom. Same with Sophomore year. Junior and Senior years he dated underclass girls. After prom he became a custodian. For the next 4 years he Matthew McConaughey’d his way through students.
When he knocked one up, he celebrated with his friends on a golf course and attempted to drive from that drunk and got in a wreck. There is a memorial golf scholarship in his name.
#8 “I could have made it to state”
#9 When my dad is angry at a decision made by an MLB baseball manager, he will say something like “this is never what we would have done when I played”. Dad never played beyond early high school.

#14 Posting (& reposting) your cheerleading pictures on FB, in your 50s
#15 “If you can’t handle me at my worst, you don’t deserve me at my best.” Has nothing to do with peaking in high school directly, but damned if every girl who peaked in high school doesn’t say that s**t.
