ME AT HALF MY AGE

Inspired by @nathanveshecco
  1. Okay so get this, I'm 11
  2. AKA 5th grade
  3. & my best friend is Mary Kate
  4. Now, while we hung out CONSTANTLY
  5. MK & I were v competitive
  6. Because we were both good students
  7. So anyways, our fifth grade teacher has this reading bulletin board
  8. It looked like a campfire
  9. & there were hands with sticks all around
  10. & you got a cotton ball glued to the stick for ever my extracurricular reading book you read
    There were these lil quizzes you had to take on the computer & pass to prove you read it? They were called ER books, but it could have been extra reading for all I know. & there was a color system too & you had to read books in or above your level to get credit
  11. SO, MK considered herself the better reader
  12. & we were neck & neck all quarter
  13. Like all the "marshmallows" couldn't even fit on our sticks
  14. SECOND ROW PEOPLE
  15. I'm obviously the hero of this story so
  16. On the last day I beat that smug bitch
  17. & then we probably went & played Bratz at her house after school
