I stole a cheerleading uniform in high school
Back in high school I had stayed late for something and got bored waiting for my ride. I wandered around the hallways and found some cheerleader uniforms that had come back from the drycleaners (back when uniforms were wool skirts & sweaters) and a package of school uniforms that had been delivered for the bookstore. I looked around to make sure no one was watching and then rifled through the cheerleader skirts & sweaters to find a set that was closest to my size. I then stuffed it into the box of girls' uniforms and hid the box in my locker.
The next day I walked home carrying my box of stolen goodies. I was sweating but excited and hard thinking about the fun I was going to have with the blouses, knickers, skirts and the cheerleading getup (alas, no matching spankies with it). I had the house to myself when I got home. The uniforms were of course new but the cheerleading outfit had a name pinned on it. The sweater and skirt belonged to Susan, a girl I've known since 5th grade. We were friendly but had never dated or anything like that. And now I had her cheerleading outfit! The theft was surely discovered by now so there was no way to return it. I just kept it hidden in my room. Any time I saw the cheerleaders at a game I imagined myself in my newly acquired uniform joining them on the edge of the field. No one ever found out that I stole it or the box of girls school uniforms.
I saw Sue for the first time since then at a reunion two weeks ago. She was friendly and we talked about old school times and other light fluffy stuff. She's married with kids, so am I, etc. But what I really wanted to do was apologize to her for stealing her cheerleader uniform.
I have her email address and I can't decide if I should tell her or not. I still have the uniform after these many years and I wonder what she'd do if I returned it?
