Chair to Fast

wrote on: June 8th, 2019

Event Happened Junior year of Milton Highschool. I said to my sister the next day..

In Milton High School... I had an awesome Science Teacher, and awesome Shop class Tech Ed Teacher.. He was also a Science Teacher, of a neighboring class...

Sometimes the Teachers were short on tools and resources.. So, they would combine the classes together....

When they did this We often lined up carrying our metal chairs from one classroom to the next...

Everyone new I loved to fast walk and go as fast as I could at times.. But. I would not do that to fast for safety reasons with a big metal chair.

It was not to uncommon for my guy friends and I to push each others buttons and jokingly say we did this or that... in jest...

So they joked.. I was speeding with my chair.... and almost ran them over..

The one teacher passing through thought they were serious and made me walk back and all my peers back to the class room and redo bringing our chairs in again...

Even after they insisted it was a joke the teacher insisted I go back and redo the move slowly...

So... Since I did like to practice very slowly Tai Chi stepping... They made the mistake of putting me at the beginning of the line...

They wanted slowly.. I gave them slowly I moved as slow as I could.. doing Tai Chi slow steps as if I was walking on Rice paper delaying us for 20 more minutes to go into the next room...

They did not accuse me of speeding with my chair again,....

The Science teacher of the adjoining room.. Laughed so hard... Yelling... I see why they call you Casey Jones!...

You are like Casey Jones at Hickman! .. He was accused of speeding through town when he was not.. So every time he passed through there until they dropped it..

He ran the train as slow as he could tying up town.. Just like you did...

Then he ran over and grabbed Steam train Whistle doppler effect tapes and started to play them lol..

I did not know what to think.. and thought well.. Maybe this story is just an old rumor...

However, this teacher was like me very straight forward and honest about everything and was also a railfan...

We loved to annoy my peers getting into our train banter.. :) ...Not often did I have an adult in my life I could mention a train topic to without an eye roll..

I often go to stand in his office and just stair at his steam train photos... My Favorite was the Hiawatha... As my Grandpa always told my stories of how they ran to the train bridge... Just to get blasted with steam and smoke as the train rolled under them lol....

I told my Grandpa that sounded nuts lol... He agreed .. He said but as children you don't care...

Then years later on a Casey Jones Museum fan group... I heard the story mentioned again. There is more to the story of course.. But, I will not tell the more of it... As people enjoy sharing items that are not often shared at the Casey Jones gatherings.. and I do not want to spoil that.. But, I just shared what I did in regards to what happened to me that day... And what my teacher told me later...

This was the same teacher and adjoined class we also wired the telegraphs up in too,, Wish, I had that skill at will lol.. That comes and goes..
