Flashback Friday

Flashback Friday is taking over for Philadelphia Friday. I'm not a huge fan of the show anymore (it's gotten pretty crude) and I needed a replacement for my Friday alliteration. Plus I needed an excuse to post picture from when I was 12.

So 7th grade, I was a dork (um, yeah. That's an understatement). I sat in the front row of Mr. Truman's Geography class and J sat next to me. J's real name was Julius. It's the kind of name you give a kid when you hope they'll stay out of trouble and become a scientist. "J" is the kind of name you give yourself when you get into trouble and have to sit in the front row next to the dorky kid.

J always sold candy to the other kids. He asked me everyday if I wanted to buy some. I thought it might boost my popularity a little bit, so one day I did. (He copied off of me enough, that he really should've waived the price).

He stealthily reached into his bag and pulled out a ziplock bag full of powder.

I could not believe that I had just bought drugs.

I shoved them into my bag and tried to forget about them. Which I did for a few days, but then while cleaning my room I found them on the floor. I was much too curious about them to just throw them away. I opened the bag and sniffed. A bunch of the powder shot up my nose and made me sneeze. At this point, I realized that I didn't just buy the drugs, but I also just did drugs! So I thought, what the heck. I already inhaled, I might as well seal my eternal fate. So I tasted....and guess what?

Crushed up smarties. I threw them away.

LOL I did the same thing, sorta. I 'dealt'. I would mix a pack of koolaid and the cup of sugar, and put it in baggies. I got in trouble for it. I was in 5th grade.

That is too funny! It is totally something I would do. Sometime ask me about the "Virgin List". :)

Amanda said...

HAHA! I so remember you at that age. Didn't realize we had a druggie in YW. I knew we had some alchy's (drinkers) and sluts, but not that. You have now rounded out the program. KUDOS! LOL! Oh, was Carol in on the gig?

if you ever run into j, tell him your mother-in-law is grateful he tricked you.
and you were not a dork in your 12-year picture. you look like a doll to me. if you want to see a dork, i'll send you my picture at age twelve.

Haha! So funny.

Oh and there's that dang Twilight tag staring me in the face. Crapper.

Oh, and I remember when my legs were that long and skinny. Those were the days.
