TODD ALLEN

Who the fuck is Todd Allen? I don't know. Do you?

Open up our freshman yearbook. Do you see Todd Allen? No. How about in our sophomore yearbook? No. What about our senior yearbook? Did he graduate with us? No. But our junior yearbook...

I got my junior yearbook in 1988. I opened up to page one of our class. And there, in the top left, first person on the page, right next to Jennifer Andersen, is some guy named Todd Allen. The first words out of my mouth were, "Who the fuck is that?"

I recently saw the yearbook once again. And as I had uttered 17 1/2 years ago, the words "Who the fuck is that" passed my lips once again.

Your guess is as good as mine. To my knowledge, I never once laid eyes on this guy. Was he there for the year, one semester, one fricken' week? I don't know.

Where is Todd today? I don't know. Is Todd married, divorced, gay, bankrupt... I don't know. For his sake, I hope he's not the Todd E. Allen from Wisconsin, who was born in February, 1971. For if he is, the guy appears to be a career criminal.

Anyone? Anyone? Todd, are you out there? Shed some insight on the fellow with the goofy grin who sat down for a picture at WHS in September, 1987.

I dunno either...I dont even remember ever hearing the name, much less putting a face with this one...Meff isn't gonna remember this one either I bet...Jason, when you read this, let us know. You're memory far exceeds mine.

Jason would have had this dude in homeroom. Perhaps he can shed some light on this mystery man.

Let me retract that. Jason was overseas during our junior year. Maybe Jen Anderson can shed some light on the guy. Anyone have her number?

If nothing else, I'm sure Craig pushed this guy around at least once...maybe he could help out...course, if he reads this blog, he's gonna end up reading his post and then he's gonna wanna beat up the Walrus and Meff...and maybe even me, so maybe we're all better off just not going there...

i think he came to us from the halfway house/boys home. (however i've been drunk just over 30 times and the synapses aren't what they used to be.) i laughed my ass off his first day. brett gruetzmacher and i were in the library and todd relentlessly got out of his seat to fuck with a globe. after 4 warnings from the librarian, todd yells "i'm looking for zimbabwe!" it was hilarious to a couple guys acting like they cared about behaving in class. anyway, that got him his first 'tree' (3) detentions. i think every time i saw him he was jerkin' someone's chain. i doubt he made it thru the year.

Mystery solved! Thank you Drew! Figuring him to be one of the group home kids fits perfectly with the Todd E. Allen (career criminal) I found.

This Todd story is great. My wife and I laughed our asses of. Before my two-year-old went to bed, I had her running around yelling, "I'm looking for Zimbabwe!" Kudos to Todd. That's good comedy, and worthy of a few detentions.

Yes, our two year-old can say "Zimbabwe".

And a few other choice phrases that we are trying to wean her off of.

Todd Allen...hmmm, nope still nothing. Sounds like a guy I coulda/ shoulda crossed paths with at some point.
