I was a very good kid. I rarely got in trouble. Straight A's. No drugs ingested or dealt. Clean room. Meticulous mower of lawns. Student leader. Athlete. Awkward enough to keep the dangerous girls away.
Yet, I never got these items that were on my wish list for stupid Christmas nearly every stupid year.
Why? What more did I need to do?
Why so stupid?
