if you stare at me in public my self esteem will drop 100%
Convo between my 7year-old students todayJosie:
I have a new crusshhhhh
Me too! On a boy!
You're a boy with a crush on a boy?
Yeah he's really cute.
(pause for a bit)
Boys can like boys. I just can't marry him because boys can't marry boys.
Yeah they can. You can marry whoever you want.
YEAH my tia has a wife so now I have a titi and a auntie.
Okay. Then maybe I'll marry him.
(from across the room) No you can't you're seven.
(Age was apparently the only foreseeable problem anyone of my elementary schoolers could see with gay marriage.)
i want to write the kind of short stories you read in english class that are on this weird level of surrealism that they still haunt you years down the road
in year 10 i wrote a story and when i got it back my teacher told me he couldnt sleep properly after reading it
