I’ve always been wildly unpopular. I remember that time two people made a bet and the terms were that whoever lost would have to hug me. “That time” was last week. Ouch.
I’ve been reading the book “The Geeks Shall Inherit the Earth” by (apparently fancy schmancy New York Times best selling author) Alexandra Robbins (though to me she is still the girl we could count on the fill the features pages at the newspaper when we were in college; see also, cheese fry eater.) The book follows a bunch of “outsiders,” in high school. It’s a very quick read, but its vivid narrative will drag you kicking and screaming back to your junior high and high school cafeterias.
Oy, the inhumanity. Actually, I have like a billion posts I want to write now.
Anyway, go buy the book and if you’re in NY go hear her speak and get your book signed. Wait, let me look up the details…
