I wasn't a geek, not really but because of the high school mentality of being disagreeable to anyone who was "different", I was labelled as one. I had regular visits to the optometrist and wore heavy dark framed glasses. Sometimes I felt as if I was suffocating in this environment. My only option was to mount a resistance of sorts, to mobilize my fellow "geeks" into a group of supporters who would fling witty one liners at anyone targeting any member of our group, a built in support group, a lifeline to survive our high school years. Observation of the weaknesses of our tormentors, a vital tool in ensuring our survival.Copyright 2016 alilee. All rights reserved.
