Poor Margaret

Oh, the practical jokes our bodies play on us in adolescence. If you're male, maybe you leave eighth grade as a boy and return in ninth as a braying, acne-peppered jackass with the libido to match. For the girls, perhaps you experience an awkward growth spurt where you're taller than the boys' basketball team for half a year, and in 3-D. 

We all pass through that budding stage of youth, but there are those who experience the changes more acutely in a sort of biological boot camp.  I felt sorry for those kids in school even while I was almost one of them. To those genetically unlucky juveniles, life's just a hot, humid storm of hormones, man.

  1. Unfortunately for some, and the rest of humanity, they NEVER respond positively to the changes they are subjected to in life. Growing up can be a bitch!

  2. I'm worried and a touch self-conscious that you chose Margaret for this girl's name. ;-)
