God Bless him! HE NEEDS IT!
Three cheers for our bus drive who's with us today.

Ellis was a girl's prep school, Annie Dillard was our best known alumna, and wrote some very nasty things about some very fine women in her book, "An American Childhood". I don't know if she ever sang the song.

We wore box pleated jumpers, what the English call gym slips. Two girls in uniform were riding on the bus, when they heard two smaller girls behind them talking and whispering. Finally one of the smaller girls asked, "Excuse me, are you Girl Scouts?"
"No," said the Ellis girl, we aren't Girl Scouts"
"See," the smaller girl told her friend, "I Told you they were nuns."
