Episode 2: You should have ditched PE.
The date is Friday, October 7, 1983. Fifteen-year-old Matthew Van Der Boot is simply trying to survive another day of sophomore year in high school. Previously: As you recall, in episode 1, Matthew receives some unexpected attention from a fellow classmate and ends up walking her to class. He later agrees to go on a date with someone he’s never met. “My friend Claudia wants to know if you’ll go to the dance with her.” And finally, he is left with the choice of either going to PE or ditching and hanging out in his art teacher’s room.
