Just had this discussion with our school secretary when I should have been writing lesson plans: everybody who went to high school in the 80s should know the movie "The Breakfast Club." It's one of the John Hughes classics (along with Pretty in Pink, 16 Candles, and St. Elmo's Fire). Here's the quiz question for you, if you're old enough: which character were you? To recap, for the sake of the 80s-challenged, there was Emilio Estevez (the jock), Molly Ringwald (the princess), Anthony Michael Hall (the nerd), Ally Sheedy (the misfit), and Judd Nelson (the stoner/rebel). I'll go first--my students think since I'm a coach and have a track state championship banner hanging on my classroom wall that I must have been Emilio Estevez. But deep down, I'm Anthony Michael Hall.
As an aside, our secretary says I'm none of the above--that I'm Harry Anderson of "Night Court." And we decided that my principal is Henry Blake from MASH (which makes Sheila into Radar O'Reilly--also a good fit).
So answer with a character from "Breakfast Club," and, if appropriate, any other 80's pop-culture character who fits you.
