Last week, what started out as an innocent Twitter conversation (“Who is the most famous alum of your high school?”) quickly evolved into a popcorn-worthy scenario. A tweeter named Sam Armstrong noted that Swift went to his high school — and, oh yeah, he dated her too.

Now, we all know that Swift began putting out her very first lovelorn songs about this time in her life, including a real zinger about a cheating jerk, “Should’ve Said No,” which appeared on her 2006 debut album.
