I really was open-minded about trying it, but I have to say that it was one of the more, um, disappointing experiences I've had in recent memory that I will not be repeating willfully.

New question for Friday, February 22, 2008:

What was the first thing that happened that made you realize that you were different from other kids?

When I asked my friend if he ever imagined "seeing from other people's eyes" and I got a blank stare in return.

That is a very good question, but I'm not sure I can give you an answer that won't just come off sad. Part of it is that I never really thought I was all that different, even if other people did.

I was teased mercilessly for wearing purple pants and a green sweatershirt...to this day, I see nothing wrong with that!

for being hyper-self-conscious in situations where most people are not and vice versa

But ... but ... I'm not different from other people! Really I'm not.

when i was in the first grade and i was hanging out in the library after school, waiting for my mother to finish up some solo PTA prep work, and for no good reason i wrote a message to the school librarian on the chalkboard. i wrote, "mrs johnson's mitochondria were here."

my mother laughed hysterically when she saw it and wouldn't let me erase it, insisting we leave it for mrs. johnson to find in the morning.

i didn't get what was so funny. hadn't everyone read madeline l'engle's "a wind in the door"? i suddenly realized that maybe it was just me, and that i'd done something very weird.

"ROAST-A BEEEEEEF!"

to be honest, that's when I knew. it's a line of a song, and I hammed it up opera-style in class as we were singing. everyone stopped for about three seconds, and then the teacher continued on playing the piano as if nothing had happened.

27 years later I found the rest of my tribe scattered around the world, gathering in places like this. we ain't so different.

^ ha ha ha

During the period where I lived in the US as a kid, I remember one of my friends commenting on the fact that my French mom was "weird" because she had scolded him for going into our kitchen and serving himself in the fridge without asking. Kids serving themselves in the fridge at friends' houses was apparently the norm in the Puritan North East at that time. That was what he led me to believe anyway.

This was one of many moments where I felt "different" during that period, and it was not a comfortable feeling.

I used to do everything to try to smooth over the weirdness that I am built upon in order to fit in.

Now I do everything I can to cultivate it.

^ my mom in Maine would have been pretty upset with him too!

I was the weird kid who stared up at the base of oak trees at recess, didn't know any good jump rope rhymes, and in first grade, pretended to have an English accent for a while in a desperate attempt to impress a new girl into being friends with me. She was completely charmed and delighted until everyone told her i was faking. That was a bad day, but now I think it's pretty funny. I told myself she was shallow anyway, and it was a relief to stop lying and pretending.
