I made it through Jr. High without a lot of scars. I never really got picked on and that was only because I made the meanest girl in school laugh during Home Ec. She totally protected me, like to a fault. She was always offering to hurt people and I was always saying no, but thank you. Only twice did I get called names: Dolphin Teeth & Boris Yeltsin. Not bad for two very potentially scary years.
I sort of enjoyed that time in life. Mostly because of the sneaking around town at night (a great and dangerous thing for a country kid). There was the excitement of standing on the lawn of the school in the mornings and being friends with boys. Orange and blue nail polish, galaxy printed purses, and big white t-shirts. But the hands down best part of those years was the music.
And so, 10 songs for all the Mountain Dew and No Doubt.
