Quintessential Nerd (9th Grade)

Same glasses but before the tape.

9th Grade was not much of an improvement over seventh or eighth grade. I recently wrote a column about my initiation into junior high. The lowest point came in ninth grade during an oral book report in my English class. It ended up setting me on the course I've taken in life. Damn that lousy book report!

Some day I'll have to commit it to print.
