The school was hard for me, for lots of reasons. One was I couldn’t read until, like, ninth grade. Also, I was a foster kid for most of the high school, and when my mom went nuts, I had to live with my grandma. That all sucked. I got popular in high school, but before that, I wasn’t so popular. Kids would tease me all the time in elementary and middle school. ͳey’d say I got on me and I smell like onions.
The flies thing came from the moles on my face. I got one under my eye, I had one on my chin, and so on. ͳat was kind of mean. ͳe onions thing was because my mom used to make eggs in the morning with onions in them. Every damn morning, I had to eat eggs and onions. ͳat would just make you stink. The whole house would stink.
