This is my middle school.
It has a chapel. Amelia, the girl I used to have a crush on, told me she wants to get married in here.
I believed her. I still do.
It has a grotto. It was a decrepit pool of stagnant water until Andrew cleaned it out.
Now it’s beautiful.
Speaking of pools…
The school’s pool isn’t big, but not many schools have a pool in the basement.
Most other schools most certainly do not have as many statues of the Virgin Mary. You’ve seen three so far.
Here’s a fourth.
We walked by this one four times a week on the way to drive our art and music teachers crazy.
None of the things above was the reason I went back, however.
I went back for the elevator.
It’s the best elevator in my world.

Pursuant to the assigned directive, my associates and I induced fiduciary precipitation in a dumbwaiter. In other words, me and my homies brought a stack of bills into an elevator and made it fuckin’ rain.
I’m not sure how we originally arrived at the idea (we being me and Miss Polly “The Uke-meister” Yukevich), but it appealed to us on a number of levels. One, it would definitely be unexpected. Two, a rain of dollar bills has the potential to really brighten someone’s day. Three, we really wanted to treat a bunch of business professionals like strippers.
We figured we should make it rain on a weekday, since that’s when most elevators in the Loop get the heaviest traffic. Ideally we were looking for a building tall enough and busy enough to have an express elevator, so that the skipped floors would give us more time to do our thing. We figured fifty dollars would be enough to achieve the desired effect. Aside from that, we needed business clothes (for disguise) and a portable speaker (for blasting dance music in the elevator). During our practice runs in Polly’s apartment, we also determined that it’s hard to make it rain effectively unless you are standing on some kind of elevated structure, such as a bar at a strip club or – in our case – a plastic crate.
