I was the new kid in my 3rd grade class and I didn't have many friends.
And when you're the new kid in class, all you care about is making friends. You need more. You need them now. You can't be alone.
So you show-off. Or at least that's what I did.
I'd show off on the playground. I wanted them to see how good I was at sports.
I started caring about the clothes I wore. I ditched my sweatpants for jeans. And as you'll see in a bit, that was a mistake.
I remember one day we were all in class and the teacher had to step out for something. It was a golden opportunity to stand out.
When the teacher was out of the room, I jumped up on my desk, put my hands behind my head and started gyrating my hips. Super cool, right?
At first, I thought everyone was loving it. They were laughing. They thought I was a rebel. Success.
Then I saw them pointing.
Then I saw them laughing even harder.
I looked down.
The fly to my jeans was wide open.
