AlsipKarenMOI3blogAt that 8th grade graduation party in Alsip (previous post) a girl sat down in front of me and I AlsipKarenMOI1blogbecame deeply quiet, suddenly. I recognized myself in her. She looked like me as a thirteen-year-old. I didn’t say anything, couldn’t really, because the music was deafening, but I did get her name, Karen.
So, there you are. A North Suburban French-German Katherine and a South-Side Hispanic Karen look alike and may very well be related. Well, actually, we all are related. It’s a fish story and then that thing called Mitochondrial DNA, you know.

The graduating class in this private junior high school in Alsip was small, I’m guessing sixty kids. 14AlsipAThe principal went all out to make this a memorable event. It was held in the gym. But at the center of the gym was a tent illuminated by tiny white string lights for a very magical effect. Awards were applauded, then there was dancing and, ta-tah, under a separate tent, that famous caricaturist Whatsername. I enjoyed this thoroughly, drawing the kids only a little sassy, but then for the teachers  I pulled out all my stops, as you can see. Even the principal got the strong treatment and she laughed uproariously when I turned the drawing around. Thank you, Lisa.———————–
