Food For Thought

I first became aware of cheerleaders when I was in junior high school. The only requirements for achieving this envied status seemed to be that you look adorable in the short skirt, baggy sweater and saddle-shoes, and that you could jump up and down, yell a lot, and generally attract attention. I didn’t know, at the time, that cheerleaders were required to audition for the role. These were called “try-outs” and girls practiced, along with their friends, for weeks ahead of time.
