68. I was, but I wasn't

We geeks sorta had our own circle of friends with band, debate, advanced chemistry, etc. So there was some fellowship there.

I never minded not having any close friends, because I had a little brother. That was all the friend I needed.

I had books too.

I was never bullied severely. Nobody was, that I knew of. At least not physically. Okay, I guess I can think of a few people. Kurt and Dan and Bonita come to mind. So why not me?

I am not sure, but I cannot imagine just taking it either. Not sure what I could have done, I was quite puny and weak, but my eyes probably said "do not try it" because I probably would have brought a weapon for my revenge. Not a gun, but maybe a hammer or a screwdriver or a pocket knife. If somebody had bloodied my nose, they would have paid for it - somehow.

But I never rode a bus either, which is probably a place of massive vulnerability with the only adult present having to watch the road.
