Nice smile emoticon I think I won “fastest runner in sprint” in 3rd, 4th, 5th grades (ages 8-10 I guess) and some music awards. But none of it was skill; I just had big calves and brain got wired for music. I’d like to be proud of a 9th grade science fair winning, but I think it was out of sympathy because the solar cigarette lighter experiment I was using to prove light focusing caused a big commotion as it was cloudy that day and I HAD TO try to make it work with a Theatre Lamp.
I got the cigarette to light though. Couldn’t smoke it. School and all, but it took damn near 5 minutes instead of 20 seconds. Yeah, maybe I deserved it.
Dang it. I just proved by my interest that I *do* believe in being Judged. Meh. There goes a lifetime’s worth of saying “don’t be judgmental” but I embraced my hypocrisy long ago tongue emoticon
