Fake-Like-You-Care-About-Me Week, Day 2

We continue with the week where you get a weight lifting IN JEANS picture plus some information about me. It is also the week where you pretend to care.


Share an interesting thing about your childhood.

I entered kindergarten able to read and do 4th grade-level math.* As a result, all through grade school, I was never expected to do the academic work but rather was assigned to the trouble-maker kid who ate paste – as his tutor.

[Kirtus, what are you doing now?! Hopefully, me working with you to learn the difference between homonyms and synonyms and keep your boy parts in your pants led to later-in-life successes!]

And me on my first day of kindergarten (in the middle):

I think it is hysterical that I am so much taller than my two same-aged friends. Yeah, I was THAT girl in grade school – the only girl in the back row of all the class pictures, the girl picked before most of the boys for kickball, AND the nerd that didn’t have to do homework. Suck it, Bitches! [ahem]

*I think I have some backwards smartness disease. I started out brilliant and have gotten dumber with time. This website is evidence that I am of barely average intelligence at this stage of my life.

  1. Can I just say how much I’m loving these! Jealous that you thought of it first. Definitely still brilliant. 🙂

    I, too, suffer from reverse intelligence and was the tallest or 2nd tallest girl in class. (It always depended in if Erica Bennett was in my class.) You’re super cute in your childhood pics! (That we don’t have in common. My mom let us have our hair cut however we wanted. All evidence suggests no child should have that much power at such a young age.)

  3. I’m pretending as hard as I can not to like these brilliant posts … Must try harder! Oh well maybe tomorrow. 😉 Simply brilliant!

    I entered kindergarten being capable of writing in cursive. This would make the teachers made because was asked to “sign my name” I would do as I was told. I was also the tallest up though 8th grade and feel like I have dumbed down as the years roll on. It does not help that my daughter is a freakin genius and I need Wikipedia and Google just to keep up! LOL

  5. I LOVE these posts. I agree with everyone else above–brilliant.

    I too was the freak tall, smart kid with reverse intelligence in school. I used to die of embarrassment to admit this, but now I am proud of it because it makes dressing and sweating and summer clothes and actually big sweaters so much easier–I wear pretty much the same bra size now as I did in 5th grade. Ha!

    (I can’t believe I said that in public.)

  6. LOVING your outfit!! I had to LOL at the picture of you. My daughter is THAT girl at her school. At 10 she’s 5’1 and after looking at her last night, maybe 5’2. Thanks for sharing!
