Insider's Guide to High School The Tattoo

Hold your nose in the hall

BRISTOL, Connecticut, U.S.A. — High school stinks.
One day, at least at Bristol Central High School, you’ll be walking down a hallway on the third floor and suddenly the most disgusting smell will fill your nose and make you want to vomit.
People will start saying that somebody threw up, but that’s not it.
It’s the awful stench of formaldehyde.
Or maybe it’s the body of whatever it is that the anatomy class is dissecting.
You’ll see kids putting their shirts over their noses or complaining as they gag.
Then you’ll notice the teachers and they’ll look completely normal, as if nothing’s wrong.
They just leave the doors open and let the smell waft out. They could at least spray some lemon stuff.
So consider this a warning to all you new freshmen: everything will seem fine until spring, when school really does stink.
