Popular

Today, we got our senior poll sheets. The questions include this prize : « Most Secretly Desired ». Now, there’s an inherent flaw to this question ; namely, were this person actually secretly desired, there’s not a large chance of their being picked. We might as well have a question, « Most Popular ». It would serve much the same purpose, without the awkward romantic overtones.

Of course, I might also just be bitter at the idea of these polls, although it was quite amusing to be picked for « Biggest Bookworm » a few years back. In general, though, like much of high school, polls and student government seem more about being popular than having the skills or fitting the poll idea. It will be interesting to see who is selected.
