WWD: Nerd Alert!

Do you wanna know something dorktastic about me? When I was a kid (let's say 5th grade just for shits and giggles) for my birthday? I desperately wanted someone to throw a pie in my face at my party. I WISH I was making this up, but alas, I am not.

 ( I swear, I am NOT picking my nose...)
WHY did I want someone to throw a pie in my face? Hell if I know. All I remember is begging my mom to do this for me. It would be SO. COOL. If ONLY she would just throw some kind of cream pie (I wasn't picky, as long as it was a cream pie), life would be GRAND.

  
Thankfully, I am sure my mom realized what a HUGE NERD I was (glasses? check. skinny bird legs? check. big nose that the other kids referred to as ski slope? check check.) and refused to comply with my birthday wish. 

Despite the fact that I was sans pie on my face for the festivities, the party went swimmingly, if memory serves. The Pink Panther cake that mom made was a hit (she was ALLLLL into making our birthday cakes back then after a Wilson's cake decorating class). Of course, the only cakes she made were Pink Panther and Holly Hobbie, since those were the only two cake pans she owned. Still, it was bitchin nonetheless.


So please throw me a friggin bone and tell me your own embarrassing memories of adolescence. Surely I'm not the ONLY one with a pie in the face story, amirite? Share. This is a safe place. Unless someone is throwing a pie. DUCK!!!

Hahahaha, adorkable indeed!
I was a huuuge dork in elementary school: huge glasses, unfortunate perm more reminiscent of Shari Lewis and Lamb Chop than the Stacie Q look I was hoping for, and I was afraid of EVERYTHING!

Oh, how I can relate. For my birthday in 6th grade, all I wanted was a filing cabinet *slash* filing system. Yes. Not only did other kids make fun of me, but their PARENTS made fun of me.

I beyond thrilled to receive a small yellow filing box, with hanging folders, which I still have today thank you very much. Humpf!

Oh gurrrl, don't even get me started on my own tinted Tootsie glasses that had my initials in tiny gold monogram stickers in the bottom of the frame. Shit on a shingle, they were baaaaaad.
