Response to The Velveteen Ocelot (Reply #9)

11. I was lucky, I think.

I come from a small town that funneled into a larger regional high school (100 in graduating class). I was actually kind of shy, and the boys from my town looked after me. It was like having 15 brothers. Somehow I floated through both worlds. Recently I saw someone who said, I wanted to be you. (Im 50) She looked kind of shocked when I said, You didnt miss anything. If you had 1-3 close friends, you did better than most. Its horrible to be young, awkward and vulnerable. I wish we had all been strong enough to admit it back then. You didnt miss anything.
