Does anyone else remember that line from the songs? Were you odd? Did you mind?
I hated standing out in school and I hated it even more knowing that I should like it. I ran away from school for a couple hours on november 11th because I didnt want to explain to the substitute why I couldnt go to the assembly. I used to tell people at bbqs that I was allergic to hotdogs so I wouldn't have to explain the blood issue. I tried to hide my fanny pack when I was skiing with the class so they wouldn't see my no blood card in it, mom was terrified I'd have an accident and not have it on my person, though not as much as the parent who sewed one into a clear holder on her kid's coat where the name label was. I hated being singled out in french class and asked what I did for christmas and having to explain in another language why I don't celebrate holidays. In grade 5 I was the only one that didn't get put on flag raising duties.
