First piece of advice: Don’t smoke. Besides the obvious health reasons, you should know that you don’t look nearly as cool as you think you do. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve found a woman less attractive once I saw that cancer stick go to her lips.
Second piece of advice: If you are going to smoke around Highland Park High School, cross Armstrong Parkway. The Board of Trustees on Tuesday approved the HPISD Code of Conduct for the 2010-11 school year. The only change from the current school year was a modification of how the HPHS campus is defined. For conduct purposes, the western border will be the east curb of Armstrong; it had been the east curb of Lomo Alto Drive, but administrators thought that was a little far to be patrolling for smokers.
(The campus’s other official borders are University Boulevard, Preston Road, and Lovers Lane.)
