Boys are stupid, stupid jerks.

Today, I was reminded of 8th grade. When I was in 8th grade, a boy named Bobby thought it would be fun to convince the rest of the boys in the class that my breasts inflated whenever I was angry. So, of course, the boys would conspire to pick on me, trying to get me mad, until I would wind up in tears. This continued until Tadashi came to me and said that the other boys were being jerks and I shouldn't let them bother me. He was right. Bobby did have the guts to apologize to me at the end of the school year. Thank you, Tadashi - I haven't seen you in years, but that small act of kindness didn't go unremembered. And thank you, Bobby - for growing a pair and apologizing. Though it was all your fault in the first place.
