1. HPHS junior David Allen became a local varsity basketball legend recently when he scored 53 points in a single game. Park Cities residents celebrated in unison for a sec before splitting up into teams over a statement made to ESPN by an excited coach.
“I have a man-crush on him,” said Highland Park head coach David Piehler. “He’s awesome.”
The link has been forwarded around town and discussed by moms readers who are feeling a bit creeped out by Piehler’s choice of words. Ladies, OMG, how do I say this? Ok, I’ve got it: Please. Stop. You’re dragging all of the hip, urban women down with you. Piehler declaring a man-crush is the ultimate compliment. MAN-crush. That’s lingo specific to the ESPN demographic. Use it in a sentence and your husband will buy you shoes.
2. So let’s say you’re a real estate agent and you want to sell the Park Cities to out-of-town buyers. Your pitch would be easy, right? I mean, all you’d have to do is tell them that thing about how there’s no poor children enrolled in HPISD.
Since no poor people of any measurable amount live in the Park Cities, no poor children are enrolled in Highland Park ISD.
And just in case that didn’t seal the deal, you’d throw in a joke about Jewish people. No?
3. I bought a little taste of victory at the Snider Plaza Tom Thumb yesterday. Oh. Yeah.
