Days since Band and I became One

My Scale

Wednesday, August 25, 2010


After reading a heartbreaking story over at Erika's blog, I was inspired to start my own shitpile of hurtful memories that need to leave my brain & heart and never have power over me again.

To you- Michael Salisbury. You can KISS MY ASS.

I was in 5th grade and I had just started a new school due to my dad's job transfer. It was after Christmas Break (oh, excuse me...Winter Break. Nah, it was Christmas Break!) and I was walking to my classroom when this 6th grade boy was coming towards me in the hallway. I think I had been at the school a week. Thank GOD we were alone, but as we passed by each other he looked right at me and said "You're so fat and ugly it's pathetic." I was completely shocked and caught off guard that I just couldn't believe I heard him correctly. I tried to contain my tears for the rest of the day, but I couldn't. When anyone asked what was wrong, I made up something.

That happened 25 years ago and I still remember it like it was yesterday.

So, as I was saying. Michael Salisbury, you have been added to the shitpile.


  1. :( I think most of us have some shit to get out of our pasts. People can be so cruel, and for some reason it's generally acceptable to be so to a fat person. The best we can do is try to shovel out those crappy memories, and instill love and compassion in our children.

  2. Right where he deserves to be. He doesn't rate space in your head or your heart. :D
