The other night we were discussing some of the problems in the world and how PE "O" wasn't going to be able so solve some of them. My youngest son walked in and upon hearing some of the things we were discussing said; "We were talking about the dark ages too in school today." Now my mind was still thinking present time and the PE and I quickly put two and two together and came up with five so I responded; "What did you say young man? " He said; "We are studying the dark ages in school. Isn't that what you were talking about?" Is that egg on my face?
Well to tell the truth I have always been gullable and thoughout my youth I was the brunt of many a cruel joke. That happened throughout my preteen years so that when I reached my teens I had such a inferiority complex that I crawled inside my shell. It wasn't until I went to my class reunion that I realized that I let a few bad people change my whole life. While at the reunion, several "it" girls approached me and said that they had always liked me but since I never spoke to them they assumed that I didn't like them. But that's water under the bridge and I am very happy where I am today.
I really don't know why so many kids picked on me when I was young. I guess because it made them feel big. I saw a few of those people at my reunion and you know they were still small people and still trying to make themselves feel bigger. So tell me. Would you pick on a kid that looked like this? Ok put down that spitball this instant. I am shocked.
Have a great day,
