Confession from the Teacher's Pet
I have a confession to make.
I was (am?) a bit of a nerd.
I loved school.
So much so that when I got home from school, I played school after school.
I lined my dolls and stuffed animals up in chairs and lectured them.
I even tried to make my younger sister sit in a chair while I lectured her.
That didn't work out as well.
As a reward for being a
hopeless nerd...er...good student, I was allowed to help out in the school library whenever I finished my work early. And oh! What a thrill that was to my book-loving heart!
Older, more socialized, and hopefully advanced almost to the status of "well-socialized geek," I am now willing to admit that my former nerdy behavior was probably less than typical.
