“Girls will be Girls” – Said by Lazy Parents Everywhere

I was watching reruns of The Middle today and was hit in the face with this gem of a scene. I immediately grabbed my laptop to share with my readers because this – YES THIS – beautifully illustrates the head-assery that is middle school. Yes people are mean, but what’s worse is the parents and teachers that let hurtful actions and exclusions like this happen. They said that they were “best friends” and that was somehow reason enough for me to be excluded. To this day, I’ll never understand that. But I still do resent that, and probably always will.

In this moment, I have never respected and appreciated Mike Heck more than when he stood up for the quirky but lovable Sue. THIS is what my latest novel is about. Forgetting What I Couldn’t Remember is an in-depth analysis of stupidity like this and the psychological ramifications of being treated this way. I will never understand how parents allow their kids to blatantly hurt others. Stay tuned for that coming in January 2020.

I was at the business end of this more times than I can count. But one particular time, it happened so much that I was bored and started my own crocheting business when I was about 12 years old. Now my pieces are available for purchase at Custom Crocheted Critters. But even though I cultivated a new talent, my heart was just broken so many times as a kid and that’s not cool. Watch this clip, and perhaps you’ll relate to what I’m saying (although, for your own sake, I hope you don’t).
