    Popularity is overrated

    Coloring for Michael is inconsistent again — and doesn’t match yesterday’s.

    I did that once in Jr. Hi. It was dumb…I didn’t mean it.

    Hey, a lot of stuff we do in our young years is dumb. Just takes us 20 or so years to realize it.

    It’s fun watching the relationship between Michael and Deanna. They eventually married.

    Don’t worry about it, Michael. You’ll be married to her in about 15 years.

    The damn thing won’t let me post anything from Lynn’s Notes.

    I don’t think it’s really being “popular”. Mike just likes her and is being teased about it. Popularity has such a desired status when you’re young.

    MPK 39: The color looks fine to me. Tan jacket and Red hat!

    I just checked, the brown is a little off but that’s about it.

    I don’t it really counts as popularity if the boy you like tells you that he hates you. Maybe in Bizarro world, that would make sense.

    I guess you’ll have to learn how to use HTML codes for characters. The “—” in the body blocked your post. Replacing it with — produces:

    Lynn’s Notes:

    I hear folks talking about kids and their relationships, and it surprises me when they say that real “love” doesn’t happen until you’re physically mature. I disagree. I remember being head over heels “in love” with a boy in my grade three class. I remember it clearly, and the feeling was as strong and as passionate as if I was 16. I had no concept of the physical stuff then — but the desperate need to be near him and to be cared for in return was overwhelming. Likewise, his rejection was painful and devastating. I hated him for showing my notes to his friends and I said so. Like Deanna Sobinski, he was attractive and popular, and he made me feel that I wasn’t good enough. In retrospect, I think he just didn’t know how to handle an ardent admirer.


    Or simply point to it, in this case:

    Poor Deanna. It’s devastating when the boy you like says that he hates you.

    I wouldn’t know, has never been an issue.

    Boys are like a pack of wolves. (And so are a lot of men). They follow the leader. If the leader says to do something and to hate someone, the rest of the pack obeys him.
