I still remember high school. I was a nerd, and happily bucked the popularity system. However, that didn't mean I was completely immune to being shunned.
It isn't fun for anyone to feel isolated. Fortunately, I had a great group of friends, so I hardly ever noticed.
But it still felt good when one of the "cool" kids was nice to me for once.
Well, I just had the biggest flashback.
This popular blogger actually recommended people click over to this page. Had I known, I would have cleaned up a little. Maybe put a funny post up front and center. Instead, I had some lame "How To" article up about making elephant toothpaste for about 4 days.
At the risk of losing everyone who ever glances at my blog (i.e. my mom and my wife and maybe my sister), I'm going to recommend you check out Carrot Jello in all her glory.
She has a witty ramble that cracks me up every time. She's on my sidebar, but you can also go here or here or even here (just in case one link wasn't good enough).
You won't be sorry.
Just don't forget who sent you.
